In some scenarios mxt_debug_msg_remove() can be called from
mxt_remove() even before the data->debug_msg_attr is updated.
So a NULL check is required for data->debug_msg_attr before
accessing it.
There is also an additional change in mxt_debug_msg_init() to update
data->debug_msg_attr only when sysfs_create_bin_file is successful.

Consider the following scenario: Atmel MXT driver module is being loaded
hence mxt_probe() is called, then mxt_probe() calls mxt_initialize() and
in mxt_initialize() function if the Atmel MXT is in bootloader mode there
is a possibility that it can return before calling mxt_debug_msg_init(),
with a value of 0 meaning no error.
In this case data->debug_msg_attr is now at the initialized state only,
which is NULL as allocation of data pointer was done with devm_kzalloc()
call in mxt_probe function. Completion of initialisation will be deferred
until some later time.
If there is now an attempt to remove the Atmel MXT driver module, in
mxt_remove() there is a call to mxt_debug_msg_remove() which calls
sysfs_remove_bin_file() with a NULL data->debug_msg_attr.
Therefore, we need to have check in mxt_debug_msg_remove() for
data->debug_msg_attr being NULL.
