Subject: [PATCH 02/11] mmc: sh-mmcif: avoid oops on spurious interrupts
 (second try)

commit 91ab252ac5a5c3461dd6910797611e9172626aed upstream.

On some systems, e.g., kzm9g, MMCIF interfaces can produce spurious
interrupts without any active request. To prevent the Oops, that results
in such cases, don't dereference the mmc request pointer until we make
sure, that we are indeed processing such a request.
