[dm-devel] dm: BUG/OOPS fix



From: Michal Miroslaw <mirq-linux rere qmqm pl>

Fix BUG I tripped on while testing failover and multipathing.

BUG shows up on error path in multipath_ctr() when parse_priority_group()
fails after returning at least once without error.  The fix is to
initialize m->ti early - just after alloc()ing it.

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000000
 printing eip:
