resource: fix the case of null pointer access
Richard and Daniel reported that UML is broken due to changes to resource traversal functions. Problem is that iomem_resource.child can be null and new code does not consider that possibility. Old code used a for loop and that loop will not even execute if p was null. Revert back to for() loop logic and bail out if p is null. I also moved sibling_only check out of resource_lock. There is no reason to keep it inside the lock. Following is backtrace of the UML crash.
