SCSI: libsas: fix handling vacant phy in sas_set_ex_phy()

commit d4a2618fa77b5e58ec15342972bd3505a1c3f551 upstream.

If a result of the SMP discover function is PHY VACANT,
the content of discover response structure (dr) is not valid.
It sometimes happens that dr->attached_sas_addr can contain
even SAS address of other phy. In such case an invalid phy
is created, what causes NULL pointer dereference during
destruction of expander's phys.

So if a result of SMP function is PHY VACANT, the content of discover
response structure (dr) must not be copied to phy structure.

This patch fixes the following bug:
