[PATCH] powerpc/pseries: Fix kernel crash caused by NULL PE

From: Gavin Shan <shangw at linux.vnet.ibm.com>
While hooking MSI interrupts, the corresponding device tree node
of the PE that the PCI device has been put into should be checked.
However, those PCI devices (e.g. VirtIO based PCI devices) that
don't have EEH capability shouldn't have the associated PE. So we
shouldn't try to get the PE's device tree node. Otherwise, it
would cause kernel crash.
Actually, it was introduced by commit 66523d9f ("powerpc/eeh: Trace
error based on PE from beginning").
