Subject: [PATCH] scsi: be2iscsi: fix potential NULL pointer dereference

From: Dmitry Voytik <voytikd@...il.com>

Fix potential NULL pointer dereference wich might happen
in function beiscsi_alloc_mem() if kmalloc_array() for
mem_descr->mem_array fails and as a result deref of NULL
occurs while passing parameters to dma_free_coherent().
