Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 36/40] md: raid0/linear: fix dereference before null check on pointer mddev

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@...onical.com>

[ Upstream commit 9a5a85972c073f720d81a7ebd08bfe278e6e16db ]

Pointer mddev is being dereferenced with a test_bit call before mddev
is being null checked, this may cause a null pointer dereference. Fix
this by moving the null pointer checks to sanity check mddev before
it is dereferenced.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Dereference before null check")
Fixes: 62f7b1989c02 ("md raid0/linear: Mark array as 'broken' and fail BIOs if a member is gone")
