[PATCH] add kmalloc checking to fs/jffs/intrep.c (245-ac16)



Hi.

The following patch adds some checks for kmalloc returning NULL
to fs/jffs/intrep.c along with some way of getting that propagated
back. Applies against 245ac16 and 246p5. These dereferences were
reported by the Stanford team a way back.
