Subject: imx-drm: ipuv3-plane: fix ipu_plane_dpms()

commit 3a44a2058747d71385eb69691c7f977cb58cc293 upstream.

When unbinding imx-drm, the following oops was observed:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000004
pgd = e995c000

Code: e1a0c00d e92dd800 e24cb004 e3a03000 (e5c03004)

This is caused by a missing check in ipu_plane_dpms for a NULL pointer.
