Subject[patch 28/32] sgi-xpc: Remove NULL pointer dereference.
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Robin Holt <holt@sgi.com>

commit 17e2161654da4e6bdfd8d53d4f52e820ee93f423 upstream.

If the bte copy fails, the attempt to retrieve payloads merely returns a
null pointer deref and not NULL as was expected.
