Subject: [RFC: 2.6.25 patch] ipv4/fib_hash.c: fix NULL dereference

Unless I miss a guaranteed relation between between "f" and 
"new_fa->fa_info" this patch is required for fixing a NULL dereference
introduced by commit a6501e080c318f8d4467679d17807f42b3a33cd5 and 
spotted by the Coverity checker.
