[PATCH 3/3] x86/intel_rdt: Return error for incorrect resource names in schemata

When schemata parses the resource names, currently it may not return
error for incorrect resource names and fail quietly without updating the
control values.

This is because for_each_enabled_rdt_resource(r) leaves "r" pointing
beyond the end of the rdt_resources_all[] array, and we check for
!r->name which results in an out of bounds access and also may not be
NULL, hence we may not detect that we did not find the name user

Update this to check (r == (rdt_resources_all + RDT_NUM_RESOURCES))
