3.16.7-ckt8 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Daniel J Blueman <daniel at numascale.com>

commit 0c510cc83bdbaac8406f4f7caef34f4da0ba35ea upstream.

When DRAM errors occur on memory controllers after EDAC_MAX_MCS (16),
the kernel fatally dereferences unallocated structures, see splat below;
this occurs on at least NumaConnect systems.

Fix by checking if a memory controller info structure was found.
