SubjectBUG/OOPS fix
[Previous copy probably got into redhat.com's spambox]

Fix BUG I tripped on while testing failover and multipathing.

BUG shows up on error path in multipath_ctr() when parse_priority_group() fails
after returning at least once without error. The fix is to initialize m->ti
early - just after alloc()ing it.

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000000
printing eip:
