Subject[35/36] ssb: fix NULL ptr deref when pcihost_wrapper is used
2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Christoph Fritz <chf.fritz@googlemail.com>

commit da1fdb02d9200ff28b6f3a380d21930335fe5429 upstream.

Ethernet driver b44 does register ssb by it's pcihost_wrapper
and doesn't set ssb_chipcommon. A check on this value
introduced with commit d53cdbb94a52a920d5420ed64d986c3523a56743
and ea2db495f92ad2cf3301623e60cb95b4062bc484 triggers:

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000010
