dma-debug: Do not add notifier when dma debugging is disabled.
If CONFIG_HAVE_DMA_API_DEBUG is defined and "dma_debug=off" is specified on the kernel command line, when you detach a driver from a device you can cause the following NULL pointer dereference: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null) IP: [<c0580d35>] dma_debug_device_change+0x5d/0x117 The problem is that the dma_debug_device_change notifier function is added to the bus notifier chain even though the dma_entry_hash array was never initialized. If dma debugging is disabled, this patch both prevents dma_debug_device_change notifiers from being added to the chain, and additionally ensures that the dma_debug_device_change notifier function is a no-op.
