Please see https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-desktop/+bug/215751

There is a bug when edid data is present but not complete. In that
case a NULL pointer is returned, but not checked for, the attached
patch rectifies that.

The other part of the patch is a function that would fail later if
this was the case.

Soren added the first part, the second I don't think is necessary.
