Subject[032/103] i7core_edac: fix panic in udimm sysfs attributes registration
2.6.35-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Marcin Slusarz <marcin.slusarz@gmail.com>

commit 64aab720bdf8771214a7c88872bd8e3194c2d279 upstream.

Array of udimm sysfs attributes was not ended with NULL marker, leading to
dereference of random memory.

EDAC DEBUG: edac_create_mci_instance_attributes: edac_create_mci_instance_attributes() file udimm0
EDAC DEBUG: edac_create_mci_instance_attributes: edac_create_mci_instance_attributes() file udimm1
EDAC DEBUG: edac_create_mci_instance_attributes: edac_create_mci_instance_attributes() file udimm2
BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000000000001a4
