[PATCH XENSTORE v1 10/10] xs: add error handling

In case of a failure deep in the call tree, we might return NULL as the
value of the domain. In that case, error out instead of dereferencing
the NULL pointer.

This bug was discovered and resolved using Coverity Static Analysis
Security Testing (SAST) by Synopsys, Inc.
