[Intel-wired-lan] [PATCH][net-next] iavf: fix dereference of null rx_buffer pointer

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king at canonical.com>

A recent commit efa14c3985828d ("iavf: allow null RX descriptors") added
a null pointer sanity check on rx_buffer, however, rx_buffer is being
dereferenced before that check, which implies a null pointer dereference
bug can potentially occur.  Fix this by only dereferencing rx_buffer
until after the null pointer check.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Dereference before null check")
