kvm: properly check debugfs dentry before using it
debugfs can now report an error code if something went wrong instead of just NULL. So if the return value is to be used as a "real" dentry, it needs to be checked if it is an error before dereferencing it. This is now happening because of ff9fb72bc077 ("debugfs: return error values, not NULL"). syzbot has found a way to trigger multiple debugfs files attempting to be created, which fails, and then the error code gets passed to dentry_path_raw() which obviously does not like it.
