    cifs: allow calling SMB2_xxx_free(NULL)
    commit 32a1fb36f6e50183871c2c1fcf5493c633e84732 upstream.
    Change these free functions to allow passing NULL as the argument and
    treat it as a no-op just like free(NULL) would.
    Or, if rqst->rq_iov is NULL.
    The second scenario could happen for smb2_queryfs() if the call
    to SMB2_query_info_init() fails and we go to qfs_exit to clean up
    and free all resources.
    In that case we have not yet assigned rqst[2].rq_iov and thus
    the rq_iov dereference in SMB2_close_free() will cause a NULL pointer
    [ bp: upstream patch also fixes SMB2_set_info_free which was introduced in 
4.20 ]
    Fixes:  1eb9fb52040f ("cifs: create SMB2_open_init()/SMB2_open_free()
