[Mesa-dev] [PATCH] st/mesa: Check after _mesa_create_context()

In some cases _mesa_create_context() can return NULL
an in the mesa state tracker, we do not concider the
case, which may cause issues within st_create_context_priv()

This patch adds a simple check (similar to the one in the
dri drivers)

v2 Do not zero-out the funcs table
