[CIFS] fix oops in cifs_lookup during net boot
Fixes bugzilla.kernel.org bug number 14641 Lookup called during network boot (network root filesystem for diskless workstation) has case where nd is null in lookup. This patch fixes that in cifs_lookup. (Shirish noted that 2.6.30 and 2.6.31 stable need the same check) Signed-off-by: Shirish Pargaonkar <shirishp@us.ibm.com> Acked-by: Jeff Layton <jlayton@redhat.com> Tested-by: Vladimir Stavrinov <vs@inist.ru> CC: Stable <stable@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Steve French <sfrench@us.ibm.com>
