Subject: [PATCH] drm/fb-helper: Do the mode_set.connectors ZERO_SIZE_PTR check

Since we cannot make sure the 'max_conn_count' will always be none
zero from the users, and then if max_conn_count equals to zero, the
kcalloc() will return ZERO_SIZE_PTR, which equals to ((void *)16).

So this patch fix this via doing the zero pionter check of it.
