Subject[PATCH] delayacct: Fix crash in delayacct_blkio_end() after delayacct init failure
While forking, if delayacct init fails due to memory shortage, it
continues expecting all delayacct users to check task->delays pointer
against NULL before dereferencing it, which all of them used to do.

c96f5471ce7d ("delayacct: Account blkio completion on the correct
task"), while updating delayacct_blkio_end() to take the target task
instead of always using %current, made the function test NULL on
%current->delays and then continue to operated on @p->delays. If
%current succeeded init while @p didn't, it leads to the following
crash.

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000004

Fix it by updating delayacct_blkio_end() check @p->delays instead.
