[PATCH for-5.0] hw/ppc/e500.c: Handle qemu_find_file() failure

From: Peter Maydell
Subject: [PATCH for-5.0] hw/ppc/e500.c: Handle qemu_find_file() failure
Date: Tue, 24 Mar 2020 12:12:16 +0000

If qemu_find_file() doesn't find the BIOS it returns NULL; we were
passing that unchecked through to load_elf(), which assumes a non-NULL
pointer and may misbehave. In practice it fails with a weird message:

  $ qemu-system-ppc -M ppce500 -display none -kernel nonesuch
  Bad address
  qemu-system-ppc: could not load firmware '(null)'

Handle the failure case better:

  $ qemu-system-ppc -M ppce500 -display none -kernel nonesuch
  qemu-system-ppc: could not find firmware/kernel file 'nonesuch'

Spotted by Coverity (CID 1238954).
