Subject[16/28] writeback: fix dereferencing NULL bdi->dev on trace_writeback_queue
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Wu Fengguang <fengguang.wu@intel.com>

commit 977b7e3a52a7421ad33a393a38ece59f3d41c2fa upstream.

When a SD card is hot removed without umount, del_gendisk() will call
bdi_unregister() without destroying/freeing it. This leaves the bdi in
the bdi->dev = NULL, bdi->wb.task = NULL, bdi->bdi_list removed state.

When sync(2) gets the bdi before bdi_unregister() and calls
bdi_queue_work() after the unregister, trace_writeback_queue will be
dereferencing the NULL bdi->dev. Fix it with a simple test for NULL.
