ACPI: extlog: fix NULL pointer dereference check

The gcc plugin -fanalyzer [1] tries to detect various
patterns of incorrect behaviour.  The tool reports:

drivers/acpi/acpi_extlog.c: In function ‘extlog_exit’:
drivers/acpi/acpi_extlog.c:307:12: warning: check of ‘extlog_l1_addr’ for NULL after already dereferencing it [-Wanalyzer-deref-before-check]
    |  306 |         ((struct extlog_l1_head *)extlog_l1_addr)->flags &= ~FLAG_OS_OPTIN;
    |      |         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^~~~~~~
    |      |                                                  |
    |      |                                                  (1) pointer ‘extlog_l1_addr’ is dereferenced here
    |  307 |         if (extlog_l1_addr)
    |      |            ~
    |      |            |
    |      |            (2) pointer ‘extlog_l1_addr’ is checked for NULL here but it was already dereferenced at (1)

Fix the NULL pointer dereference check in extlog_exit().
