[PATCH v1 6/7] iommu/vt-d: Remove misleading "domain 0" test from domain_exit()

From: Bjorn Helgaas <bhelgaas@xxxxxxxxxx>

The "Domain 0 is reserved, so dont process it" comment suggests that a NULL
pointer corresponds to domain 0.  I don't think that's true, and in any
case, every caller supplies a non-NULL domain pointer that has already been
dereferenced, so the test is unnecessary.

Remove the test for a null "domain" pointer.  No functional change

This null pointer check was added by 5e98c4b1d6e8 ("Allocation and free
functions of virtual machine domain").
