Subject[PATCH RESEND v2 1/3] lib, stackdepot: check stackdepot handle before accessing slabs.
stack_depot_save allocates slabs that will be used for storing
objects in future.If this slab allocation fails we may get to
a situation where space allocation for a new stack_record fails,
causing stack_depot_save to return 0 as handle.
If user of this handle ends up invoking stack_depot_fetch with
this handle value, current implementation of stack_depot_fetch
will end up using slab from wrong index.
To avoid this check handle value at the beginning.
