[ Upstream commit 5a371cf87e145b86efd32007e46146e78c1eff6d ]

ibmr.device is being set only after ib_alloc_mr() is successfully complete.
Therefore, in case imlx4_mr_enable() returns with error, the error flow
unwinder calls to mlx4_free_priv_pages(), which uses ibmr.device.

Such usage causes to NULL dereference oops and to fix it, the IB device
should be set in the mr struct earlier stage (e.g. prior to calling
