Subject: [PATCH v2] appletalk: Fix potential NULL pointer dereference in unregister_snap_client

From: YueHaibing <yuehaibing@...wei.com>

register_snap_client may return NULL, all the callers
check it, but only print a warning. This will result in
NULL pointer dereference in unregister_snap_client and other
places.

It has always been used like this since v2.6
