Subject: [PATCH] Fixes the null pointer deferences in nsim_bpf

Syzkaller found a null pointer dereference in nsim_bpf
originating from the lack of a null check for state.

This patch fixes the issue by adding a check for state
in two functions nsim_prog_set_loaded and nsim_setup_prog_hw_checks

Reported-by: syzbot+44c2416196b7c607f226@...kaller.appspotmail.com
Closes: https://syzkaller.appspot.com./bug?extid=44c2416196b7c607f226
