Subject[patch 18/38] mmc: sdhci: Check mrq != NULL in sdhci_tasklet_finish
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Chris Ball <cjb@laptop.org>

commit 0c9c99a765321104cc5f9c97f949382a9ba4927e upstream.

It seems that under certain circumstances the sdhci_tasklet_finish()
call can be entered with mrq set to NULL, causing the system to crash
with a NULL pointer de-reference.

Seen on S3C6410 system. Based on a patch by Dimitris Papastamos.
