video: uvesafb: Deletion of an unnecessary check before the function call “uvesafb_free”

Author: Markus Elfring <>

The uvesafb_free() function tests whether its argument is NULL and then
returns immediately. Thus the test around the call is not needed.

This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.
