Subject[061/105] UBIFS: fix oops on error path in read_pnode
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Artem Bityutskiy <Artem.Bityutskiy@nokia.com>

commit 54acbaaa523ca0bd284a18f67ad213c379679e86 upstream.

Thanks to coverity which spotted that UBIFS will oops if 'kmalloc()'
in 'read_pnode()' fails and we dereference a NULL 'pnode' pointer
when we 'goto out'.
