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

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

From: Alexander Usyskin <alexander.usyskin@intel.com>

commit 5cb906c7035f03a3a44fecece9d3ff8fcc75d6e0 upstream.

Don't set read callback to NULL during reset as
this leads to memory leak of both cb and its buffer.
The memory is correctly freed during mei_release.

The memory leak is detectable by kmemleak if
application has open read call while system is going through
suspend/resume.
