[PATCH 4.4 27/45] ath9k: fix NULL pointer dereference




4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Miaoqing Pan <miaoqing@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 40bea976c72b9ee60f8d097852deb53ccbeaffbe upstream.

relay_open() may return NULL, check the return value to avoid the crash.
