If set default data via ajaxSetup()

For example

 data : {'kid' : 'mike'}

And then use load('url',callback) , whith callback, data do not send to the server.

If use load('url') - All works correctly.

Same bug in get function....

In both functions, if second argument is a callback function, jQuery set data param to NULL value, and then it value rewrite default in extend() function. Correctly use UNDEFINED value, because in extend() fucntion use hard type hinting


} else if ( copy !== undefined ) {
 target[ name ] = copy;


Actually both for version 1.5, and for version 1.4

Fixes #8277. Sets data to undefined rather than null when it is not provided in ajax helpers so that it won't revent data set in ajaxSettings from being used. Unit test added.
