Patch of potential null pointer deference

There is a potential null pointer deference vulnerability in drm/r128_cce.c and

    drm/r128: Add test for initialisation to all ioctls that require it

    Almost all r128's private ioctls require that the CCE state has
    already been initialised.  However, most do not test that this has
    been done, and will proceed to dereference a null pointer.  This may
    result in a security vulnerability, since some ioctls are

    This adds a macro for the common initialisation test and changes all
    ioctl implementations that require prior initialisation to use that

    Also, r128_do_init_cce() does not test that the CCE state has not
    been initialised already.  Repeated initialisation may lead to a crash
    or resource leak.  This adds that test.

352 static int r128_do_init_cce(struct drm_device * dev, drm_r128_init_t *
353 {
354         drm_r128_private_t *dev_priv;
356         DRM_DEBUG("\n");
358         dev_priv = drm_alloc(sizeof(drm_r128_private_t), DRM_MEM_DRIVER);
359         if (dev_priv == NULL)
360                 return -ENOMEM;
362         memset(dev_priv, 0, sizeof(drm_r128_private_t));
364         dev_priv->is_pci = init->is_pci;
366         if (dev_priv->is_pci && !dev->sg) {
367                 DRM_ERROR("PCI GART memory not allocated!\n");
368                 dev->dev_private = (void *)dev_priv;
369                 r128_do_cleanup_cce(dev);
370                 return -EINVAL;
371         }

For example, there is missing check for dev->dev_private before line 358 in
r128_do_init_cce in sys/dev/drm/r128_cce.c.
