bsg: fix potential error pointer dereference
Dan writes: block/bsg.c:327 bsg_map_hdr() error: 'next_rq' dereferencing possible ERR_PTR(). Fix this by setting next_rq to NULL, for the case where it can be != NULL but an error pointer. Reported-by: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@fb.com>
