While bionic & cosmic aren't susceptible to the crash described in the
commit log, there is a potential for memory corruption. This is a
trivial backport of the fix from the 4.19.29 stable release. Regression
tested on a HiSilicon D06 (arm64) by removing the hisi_sas_v3_hw driver
from a ramdisk (in the 5.0 kernel, this would trigger the crash described
in the commit message). Since this is generic code, also regression tested
in an x86 VM by removing/inserting the 8139 nic driver several times.
