Subject[PATCH] kvm: fix incorrect NULL check on list iterator
The bug is here:
if (!p)
return ret;

The list iterator value 'p' will *always* be set and non-NULL by
list_for_each_entry(), so it is incorrect to assume that the iterator
value will be NULL if the list is empty or no element is found.

To fix the bug, Use a new value 'iter' as the list iterator, while use
the old value 'p' as a dedicated variable to point to the found element.

Fixes: dfaa973ae9605 ("KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: In H_SVM_INIT_DONE, migrate remaining normal-GFNs to secure-GFNs")
