A pointer has already been dereferenced before checking if it is NULL.
It doesn't make any sense, so correct to avoid it.

Fixes: 4f3cfcbc3df3 ("net/iavf: support eCPRI msg type 0 for RSS")
Coverity issue: 365290

patchwork warning CHECK:OPEN_ENDED_LINE for above code 
As we have 100 char line limit now, the wrap is not necessary.

Acked-by: Qi Zhang <qi.z.zhang@intel.com>

Applied to dpdk-next-net-intel after capture above fix.

Thanks
Qi
