mei: set client's read_cb to NULL when flow control fails
commit accb884b32e82f943340688c9cd30290531e73e0 upstream. In mei_cl_read_start(), if it fails to send flow control request, it will release "cl->read_cb" but forget to set pointer to NULL, leaving "cl->read_cb" still pointing to random memory, next time this client is operated like mei_release(), it has chance to refer to this wrong pointer. Fixes: PANIC at kfree in mei_release() [228781.826904] Call Trace: [228781.829737] [<c16249b8>] ? mei_cl_unlink+0x48/0xa0 [228781.835283] [<c1624487>] mei_io_cb_free+0x17/0x30 [228781.840733] [<c16265d8>] mei_release+0xa8/0x180 [228781.845989] [<c135c610>] ? __fsnotify_parent+0xa0/0xf0 [228781.851925] [<c1325a69>] __fput+0xd9/0x200 [228781.856696] [<c1325b9d>] ____fput+0xd/0x10 [228781.861467] [<c125cae1>] task_work_run+0x81/0xb0 [228781.866821] [<c1242e53>] do_exit+0x283/0xa00 [228781.871786] [<c1a82b36>] ? kprobe_flush_task+0x66/0xc0 [228781.877722] [<c124eeb8>] ? __dequeue_signal+0x18/0x1a0 [228781.883657] [<c124f072>] ? dequeue_signal+0x32/0x190 [228781.889397] [<c1243744>] do_group_exit+0x34/0xa0 [228781.894750] [<c12517b6>] get_signal_to_deliver+0x206/0x610 [228781.901075] [<c12018d8>] do_signal+0x38/0x100 [228781.906136] [<c1626d1c>] ? mei_read+0x42c/0x4e0 [228781.911393] [<c12600a0>] ? wake_up_bit+0x30/0x30 [228781.916745] [<c16268f0>] ? mei_poll+0x120/0x120 [228781.922001] [<c1324be9>] ? vfs_read+0x89/0x160 [228781.927158] [<c16268f0>] ? mei_poll+0x120/0x120 [228781.932414] [<c133ca34>] ? fget_light+0x44/0xe0 [228781.937670] [<c1324e58>] ?
