When trying to unbind imx-drm, the following oops was observed from
the imx-ldb driver:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 0000001c
pgd = de954000

This is caused by only having one channel out of the pair configured in
DT; the second channel remains uninitialised, but upon unbind, the
driver attempts to clean up both, thereby dereferencing a NULL pointer.
Avoid this by checking that the second channel is initialised.
