Subject[34-longterm 141/179] cifs: fix NULL pointer dereference in cifs_find_smb_ses
Date
From: Jeff Layton <jlayton@redhat.com>

-------------------
This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release.
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/paulg/longterm-queue-2.6.34.git
If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.
-------------------
commit fc87a40677bbe0937e2ff0642c7e83c9a4813f3d upstream.

cifs_find_smb_ses assumes that the vol->password field is a valid
pointer, but that's only the case if a password was passed in via
the options string. It's possible that one won't be if there is
no mount helper on the box.
