Re: [PATCH] [SCSI] qla2xxx: qla2x00_probe_one kernel panic.

When qla2x00_probe_one fails, its back-out logic tries to free up
resources already allocated.

When qla2x00_probe_one fails at the steps for qla2x00_request_irqs
or qla2x00_alloc_queues, it will call qla2x00_free_device.  This
path eventually calls qla2x00_free_irqs which accesses ha->rsp_q_map.
However, the rsp_q_map pointer hasn't been initialized yet.

This causes a "NULL pointer dereference" panic.
