Subject: [PATCH RTF] sh_eth: fix kernel oops in skb_put()

In a low memory situation the following kernel oops occurs:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000050
pgd = 8490c000
[00000050] *pgd=4651e831, *pte=00000000, *ppte=00000000

This is because netdev_alloc_skb() fails and 'mdp->rx_skbuff[entry]' is left
NULL but sh_eth_rx() later uses it without checking. Add such check...
