Subject: [PATCH 3.13 135/149] SCSI: storvsc: NULL pointer dereference fix

3.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Ales Novak <alnovak@...e.cz>

commit b12bb60d6c350b348a4e1460cd68f97ccae9822e upstream.

If the initialization of storvsc fails, the storvsc_device_destroy()
causes NULL pointer dereference.

storvsc_bus_scan()
  scsi_scan_target()
    __scsi_scan_target()
      scsi_probe_and_add_lun(hostdata=NULL)
        scsi_alloc_sdev(hostdata=NULL)

	  sdev->hostdata = hostdata

	  now the host allocation fails

          __scsi_remove_device(sdev)

	  calls sdev->host->hostt->slave_destroy() ==
	  storvsc_device_destroy(sdev)
	    access of sdev->hostdata->request_mempool
