Subject: [PATCH 4.19 242/321] kvm: properly check debugfs dentry before using it

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@...uxfoundation.org>

[ Upstream commit 8ed0579c12b2fe56a1fac2f712f58fc26c1dc49b ]

debugfs can now report an error code if something went wrong instead of
just NULL.  So if the return value is to be used as a "real" dentry, it
needs to be checked if it is an error before dereferencing it.

This is now happening because of ff9fb72bc077 ("debugfs: return error
values, not NULL").  syzbot has found a way to trigger multiple debugfs
files attempting to be created, which fails, and then the error code
gets passed to dentry_path_raw() which obviously does not like it.
