Subject: [PATCH net-next] openvswitch: Fix return value check in ovs_meter_cmd_features()

In case of error, the function ovs_meter_cmd_reply_start() returns
ERR_PTR() not NULL. The NULL test in the return value check should
be replaced with IS_ERR().

Fixes: 96fbc13d7e77 ("openvswitch: Add meter infrastructure")
