From: Yingjie Wang <wangyingjie55@126.com>

In nd_dax_probe(), 'nd_dax' is allocated by nd_dax_alloc().
nd_dax_alloc() may fail and return NULL, so we should better check
it's return value to avoid a NULL pointer dereference
a bit later in the code.

Fixes: c5ed9268643c ("libnvdimm, dax: autodetect support")
