locking/rtmutex: Fix ww_mutex deadlock check

Dan reported that rt_mutex_adjust_prio_chain() can be called with
.orig_waiter == NULL however commit a055fcc132d4 ("locking/rtmutex: Return
success on deadlock for ww_mutex waiters") unconditionally dereferences it.

Since both call-sites that have .orig_waiter == NULL don't care for the
return value, simply disable the deadlock squash by adding the NULL check.

Notably, both callers use the deadlock condition as a termination condition
for the iteration; once detected, it is sure that (de)boosting is done.
Arguably step [3] would be a more natural termination point, but it's
dubious whether adding a third deadlock detection state would improve the
code.
