printk: Fix panic caused by passing log_buf_len to command line

commit 277fcdb2 upstream.

log_buf_len_setup does not check input argument before passing it to
simple_strtoull. The argument would be a NULL pointer if "log_buf_len",
without its value, is set in command line and thus causes the following
panic.

This patch adds a check to prevent the panic.
