genirq: Prevent potential NULL dereference in irq_set_irq_wake()
In kernel/irq/manage.c::irq_set_irq_wake() we call irq_get_desc_buslock() which may return NULL, but the code dereferences the result unconditionally. irq_set_irq_wake() has lots of callers - I checked a few and I couldn't find anything that guarantees that they won't call it with some input that will cause irq_get_desc_buslock() to return NULL, so I think it's a good thing to test and -EINVAL was the most sane error code in this situation that I could think of. Not all callers test the return value of irq_set_irq_wake(), but those that do take != 0 to mean error as far as I can see, so they should be fine. I guess those that don't test actually should, but that's a different issue.
