Subject[PATCH 3.16 037/136] serial: uartlite: fix exit path null pointer
3.16.80-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@infradead.org>

commit a553add0846f355a28ed4e81134012e4a1e280c2 upstream.

Call uart_unregister_driver() conditionally instead of
unconditionally, only if it has been previously registered.

This uses driver.state, just as the sh-sci.c driver does.

Fixes this null pointer dereference in tty_unregister_driver(),
since the 'driver' argument is null:

general protection fault: 0000 [#1] PREEMPT SMP KASAN PTI
RIP: 0010:tty_unregister_driver+0x25/0x1d0
