[ Upstream commit ea2412dc21cc790335d319181dddc43682aef164 ]

Running the Clang static analyzer on IORT code detected the following

Logic error: Branch condition evaluates to a garbage value



If the named component associated with a given device has no IORT
mappings, iort_get_platform_device_domain() exits its MSI mapping loop
with msi_parent pointer containing garbage, which can lead to erroneous
code path execution.

Initialize the msi_parent pointer, fixing the bug.

platform device")
