Subject: [PATCH][next] drm/amd/display: don't release dc->current_state if it is null

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@...onical.com>

Currently function construct calls destruct if the allocation of
dc->current_state fails, however, the destruct function will
attempt dereference dc->current_state when calling dc_release_state.
Avoid this null pointer dereference by checking if the pointer is
not null before calling dc_release_state.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Dereference after null check")
