Deferred.promise( target) only works fine when typeof( target)=='object'

Deferred.promise( target) should work fine for any type of target except null and undefined.

Before version 1.8.0 (i used version 1.7.2) you could do

var tracker = $.Deferred();

var foo = function() {


foo = tracker.promise( foo);


Since version 1.8.0 the same code returns just the promise instead of the extend function.

Should be easy to fix.

Silly, silly regression. Thanks for catching this one.

deferred.promise(obj) should work with non-objects. Fixes #12521. Much needed unit tests added!
