ns83820: Avoid bad pointer deref in ns83820_init_one().
In drivers/net/ns83820.c::ns83820_init_one() we dynamically allocate memory via alloc_etherdev(). We then call PRIV() on the returned storage which is 'return netdev_priv()'. netdev_priv() takes the pointer it is passed and adds 'ALIGN(sizeof(struct net_device), NETDEV_ALIGN)' to it and returns it. Then we test the resulting pointer for NULL, which it is unlikely to be at this point, and later dereference it. This will go bad if alloc_etherdev() actually returned NULL. This patch reworks the code slightly so that we test for a NULL pointer (and return -ENOMEM) directly after calling alloc_etherdev().
