One fix for a real oops on IA64 AGP system + 2 minor fixes.

Dave.

agp/hp: fail gracefully if we don't find an IOC

Bail out if we don't find an enclosing IOC. Previously, if we didn't
find one, we tried to set things up using garbage for the SBA/IOC register
address, which causes a crash.

This crash only happens if firmware supplies a defective ACPI namespace, so
it doesn't fix any problems in the field.

agp/hp: fixup hp agp after ACPI changes

Commit 15b8dd53f5ffa changed the string in info->hardware_id from a static
array to a pointer and added a length field. But instead of changing
"sizeof(array)" to "length", we changed it to "sizeof(length)" (== 4),
which corrupts the string we're trying to null-terminate.

We no longer even need to null-terminate the string, but we *do* need to
check whether we found a HID. If there's no HID, we used to have an empty
array, but now we have a null pointer.

The combination of these defects causes this oops:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference (address 0000000000000003)
modprobe[895]: Oops 8804682956800 [1]
ip is at zx1_gart_probe+0xd0/0xcc0 [hp_agp]

agp: correct missing cleanup on error in agp_add_bridge

While investigating a kmemleak detected leak, I encountered the
agp_add_bridge function. It appears to be responsible for freeing
the agp_bridge_data in the case of a failure, but it is only doing
so for some errors.

Fix it to always free the bridge data if a failure condition is
encountered.
