3.5.7.3 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Xi Wang <xi.wang@gmail.com>

commit e25fbe380c4e3c09afa98bcdcd9d3921443adab8 upstream.

The following null pointer check is broken.

	*option = match_strdup(args);
	return !option;

The pointer `option' must be non-null, and thus `!option' is always false.
Use `!*option' instead.

The bug was introduced in commit c5cb09b6f8 ("Cleanup: Factor out some
cut-and-paste code.").
