target: Fix alua_access_state attribute OOPs for un-configured devices
commit f1453773514bb8b0bba0716301e8c8f17f8d39c7 upstream. This patch fixes a OOPs where an attempt to write to the per-device alua_access_state configfs attribute at: /sys/kernel/config/target/core/$HBA/$DEV/alua/$TG_PT_GP/alua_access_state results in an NULL pointer dereference when the backend device has not yet been configured. This patch adds an explicit check for DF_CONFIGURED, and fails with -ENODEV to avoid this case.
