xsysace: Fix error handling in ace_setup

If xace hardware reports a bad version number, the error handling code
in ace_setup() calls put_disk(), followed by queue cleanup. However, since
the disk data structure has the queue pointer set, put_disk() also
cleans and releases the queue. This results in blk_cleanup_queue()
accessing an already released data structure, which in turn may result
in a crash such as the following.

Fix the problem by setting the disk queue pointer to NULL before calling
put_disk(). A more comprehensive fix might be to rearrange the code
to check the hardware version before initializing data structures,
but I don't know if this would have undesirable side effects, and
it would increase the complexity of backporting the fix to older kernels.
