Subject: [PATCH 3.13 241/259] bnx2x: fix possible panic under memory stress

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

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

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@...gle.com>

[ Upstream commit 07b0f00964def8af9321cfd6c4a7e84f6362f728 ]

While it is legal to kfree(NULL), it is not wise to use :
put_page(virt_to_head_page(NULL))

 BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffeba400000000
 IP: [<ffffffffc01f5928>] virt_to_head_page+0x36/0x44 [bnx2x]
