Subject: [PATCH] ath11k: Fix pointer dereferenced before checking

The pointer sspec is dereferencing pointer sar before sar is being
null checked. Fix this by assigning sar->sub_specs to sspec only if
sar is not NULL, otherwise just NULL. The code has checked sar whether
it is NULL or not as below, but use before checking.
