Subject: CVE-2024-26662: drm/amd/display: Fix 'panel_cntl' could be null in 'dcn21_set_backlight_level()'


In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

drm/amd/display: Fix 'panel_cntl' could be null in 'dcn21_set_backlight_level()'

'panel_cntl' structure used to control the display panel could be null,
dereferencing it could lead to a null pointer access.

Fixes the below:
drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/../display/dc/hwss/dcn21/dcn21_hwseq.c:269 dcn21_set_backlight_level() error: we previously assumed 'panel_cntl' could be null (see line 250)

supported by the Linux kernel community at all.  If however, updating to
the latest release is impossible, the individual changes to resolve this
