Subject: usb: xhci: Fix OOPS in xhci error handling code

commit 0eda06c7c17ae48d7db69beef57f6e2b20bc3c72 upstream.

The xhci driver will OOPS on resume from S2/S3 if dma_alloc_coherent()
is out of memory. This is a result of two things:
1. xhci_mem_cleanup() in xhci-mem.c free's xhci->lpm_command if
it's not NULL, but doesn't set it to NULL after the free.
2. xhci_mem_cleanup() is called twice on resume, once for normal
restart and once from xhci_mem_init() if dma_alloc_coherent() fails,
resulting in a free of xhci->lpm_command that has already been freed.
The fix is to set xhci->lpm_command to NULL after freeing it.
