Commit 3fe4bae88460869a8e553397cd9057a4ee7ca341 (mtd: introduce
mtd_suspend interface) introduced the mtd_suspend() routine
which didn't check whether or not mtd and mtd->suspend were
both valid pointers.  Later commit 079c985e7a6f4ce60f931cebfdd5ee3c3
(mtd: do not use mtd->suspend and mtd->resume directly) added the
check for mtd->suspend, but still it failed to check mtd.  Moreover,
it caused mtd_suspend() to return an error code for NULL
mtd->suspend, which makes system suspend fail on one of my test
systems on every attempt and which is a regression from v3.2.

Fix mtd_suspend() by making it check if mtd is not NULL and
return 0 if mtd or mtd->suspend is NULL, which shouldn't prevent
the system from suspending.
