[PATCH 4.19 26/48] cfg80211: check vendor command doit pointer before use

[ Upstream commit 4052d3d2e8f47a15053320bbcbe365d15610437d ]

In the case where a vendor command does not implement doit, and has no
flags set, doit would not be validated and a NULL pointer dereference
would occur, for example when invoking the vendor command via iw.

I encountered this while developing new vendor commands. Perhaps in
practice it is advisable to always implement doit along with dumpit,
but it seems reasonable to me to always check doit anyway, not just
