[PATCH] drm/amdgpu: fix possible null-pointer dereference in amdgpu_ttm_tt_populate()

The variable ttm is assigned to the variable gtt, and the variable gtt
is checked in:
  if (gtt && gtt->userptr)

This indicates that both ttm and gtt can be NULL.
If so, a null-pointer dereference will occur:
  if (ttm->page_flags & TTM_PAGE_FLAG_SG)

Also, some null-pointer dereferences will occur in the function
ttm_pool_alloc() which is called in:
  return ttm_pool_alloc(&adev->mman.bdev.pool, ttm, ctx);

To fix these possible null-pointer dereferences, the function returns
-EINVAL when ttm is NULL.
