In the code added to function submit_page_section by commit b1058b981,
sdio->bio can currently be NULL when calling dio_bio_submit.  This then
leads to a NULL pointer access in dio_bio_submit, so check for a NULL
bio in submit_page_section before trying to submit it instead.

Fixes xfstest generic/250 on gfs2.

How far back in -stable should it go?  I'm fine with the patch, but I'd
rather have accurate Cc: stable in commit message...

The bug was introduced in 3.10, and apart from a trivial conflict with:

  09cbfeaf1a5a  mm, fs: get rid of PAGE_CACHE_* and
page_cache_{get,release} macros

from v4.6, it applies up to v3.10.

The conflict is in the diff context: page_cache_release has been
replaced by put_page.

Thanks,
Andreas
