This is a patch for the changes committed in #8209

If you have a ModelForm with extra fields that represent foreign key relationships between models self.instance._meta.get_field_by_name(name) will find a field with the given name and will attempt to check it. However, this will fail because get_field_by_name[0] will return a RelatedObject rather than a form field object like the code is expecting.

The submitted patch checks the value returned by get_field_by_name which returns true when the given field exists on the model, if this value is False it bypasses the check.
