    UBI: don't use array index before testing if it is negative
    I can't find anything guaranteeing that 'ubi_num' cannot be <0 in
    drivers/mtd/ubi/kapi.c::ubi_open_volume(), and in fact the code
    even tests for that and errors out if so. Unfortunately the test
    for "ubi_num < 0" happens after we've already used 'ubi_num' as
    an array index - bad thing to do if it is negative.
    This patch moves the test earlier in the function and then moves
    the indexing using that variable after the check. A bit safer :-)
