Subject: [PATCH] netvm: check for page == NULL when propogating the
 skb->pfmemalloc flag

Commit [c48a11c7: netvm: propagate page->pfmemalloc to skb] is responsible
for the following bug triggered by a xen network driver

The problem is that the xenfront driver is passing a NULL page to
__skb_fill_page_desc() which was unexpected. This patch checks that
there is a page before dereferencing.
