If the VGA connector has no DDC channel, an error pointer will be
dereferenced, e.g. on Salvator-XS:

    Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 000000000000017d
    ...
    Call trace:
     sysfs_do_create_link_sd.isra.0+0x40/0x108
     sysfs_create_link+0x20/0x40
     drm_sysfs_connector_add+0xa8/0xc8
     drm_connector_register.part.3+0x54/0xb0
     drm_connector_register_all+0xb0/0xd0
     drm_modeset_register_all+0x54/0x88
     drm_dev_register+0x18c/0x1d8
     rcar_du_probe+0xe4/0x150
     ...

This happens because vga->ddc either contains a valid DDC channel
pointer, or -ENODEV, and drm_connector_init_with_ddc() expects a valid
DDC channel pointer, or NULL.

Fix this by resetting vga->ddc to NULL in case of -ENODEV, and replacing
the existing error checks by non-NULL checks.
This is similar to what the HDMI connector driver does.

Fixes: a4f9087e85de141e ("drm/bridge: dumb-vga-dac: Provide ddc symlink in connector sysfs directory")

An alternative would be to check if vga->ddc contains an error pointer,
and calling drm_connector_init() instead of
drm_connector_init_with_ddc(), like before.
