slub: Check for page NULL before doing the node_match check

But the SLUB code is relatively lockless, and the spin_locks there are raw_spin_locks (not converted to mutexes), thus I believe this bug can happen in mainline without -rt features. The -rt patch is just good at triggering mainline bugs ;-) Anyway, looking at where this crashed, it seems that the page variable can be NULL when passed to the node_match() function (which does not check if it is NULL). When this happens we get the above panic. As page is only used in slab_alloc() to check if the node matches, if it's NULL I'm assuming that we can say it doesn't and call the __slab_alloc() code. Is this a correct assumption?
