Subject[PATCH v2 03/11] drm/tegra: vic: Fix DMA API misuse
Upon failure, dma_alloc_coherent() returns NULL. If that does happen,
passing some uninitialised stack contents to dma_mapping_error() - which
belongs to a different API in the first place - has precious little
chance of detecting it.

Also include the correct header, because the fragile transitive
inclusion currently providing it is going to break soon.

Fixes: 20e7dce255e9 ("drm/tegra: Remove memory allocation from Falcon library")

It also doesn't appear to handle failure of the tegra_drm_alloc() path
either, but that's a loose thread I have no desire to pull on... ;)

v2: Resend as part of the series, originally posted separately here:
