[SCSI] scsi_lib: fix potential NULL dereference
Jiri Slaby [Wed, 23 Sep 2009 14:15:35 +0000 (16:15 +0200)]
Stanse found a potential NULL dereference in scsi_kill_request.

Instead of triggering BUG() in 'if (unlikely(cmd == NULL))' branch,
the kernel will Oops earlier on cmd dereference.

Move the dereferences after the if.
