Subject: [PATCH v2 3/4] perf intel-pt: Smatch: Fix potential NULL pointer dereference

Based on the following report from Smatch, fix the potential
NULL pointer dereference check.

  tools/perf/util/intel-pt.c:3200
  intel_pt_process_auxtrace_info() error: we previously assumed
  'session->itrace_synth_opts' could be null (see line 3196)

  tools/perf/util/intel-pt.c:3206
  intel_pt_process_auxtrace_info() warn: variable dereferenced before
  check 'session->itrace_synth_opts' (see line 3200)

tools/perf/util/intel-pt.c
3196         if (session->itrace_synth_opts && session->itrace_synth_opts->set) {
3197                 pt->synth_opts = *session->itrace_synth_opts;
3198         } else {
3199                 itrace_synth_opts__set_default(&pt->synth_opts,
3200                                 session->itrace_synth_opts->default_no_sample);
                                     ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
3201                 if (!session->itrace_synth_opts->default_no_sample &&
3202                     !session->itrace_synth_opts->inject) {
3203                         pt->synth_opts.branches = false;
3204                         pt->synth_opts.callchain = true;
3205                 }
3206                 if (session->itrace_synth_opts)
                         ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
3207                         pt->synth_opts.thread_stack =
3208                                 session->itrace_synth_opts->thread_stack;
3209         }

'session->itrace_synth_opts' is impossible to be a NULL pointer in
intel_pt_process_auxtrace_info(), thus this patch removes the NULL
test for 'session->itrace_synth_opts'.
