ipmi: Fix kernel panic at ipmi_ssif_thread()
commit 6de65fcfdb51835789b245203d1bfc8d14cb1e06 upstream. msg_written_handler() may set ssif_info->multi_data to NULL when using ipmitool to write fru. Before setting ssif_info->multi_data to NULL, add new local pointer "data_to_send" and store correct i2c data pointer to it to fix NULL pointer kernel panic and incorrect ssif_info->multi_pos.
