[ 16.908869] Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x00000007
[ 16.908869]
[ 18.125813] ---[ end Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x00000007]

While registering nest imc at init, cpu-hotplug callback `nest_pmu_cpumask_init()`
makes an opal call to stop the engine. And if the OPAL call fails,
imc_common_cpuhp_mem_free() is invoked to cleanup memory and cpuhotplug setup.

But when cleaning up the attribute group, we were dereferencing the attribute
element array without checking whether the backing element is not NULL. This
causes the kernel panic.

Add a check for the backing element prior to dereferencing the attribute element,
to handle the failing case gracefully.
