The mod_freesync_build_vrr_infopacket() function uses rather obscure
calling conventions, where an enum is passed in through a pointer,
and a NULL pointer is expected to behave the same way as the zero-value
(TRANSFER_FUNC_UNKNOWN).

Trying to build this with clang results in a warning:

drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/../display/amdgpu_dm/amdgpu_dm.c:4601:3: error: expression which evaluates to zero treated
      as a null pointer constant of type 'const enum color_transfer_func *' [-Werror,-Wnon-literal-null-conversion]

Passing it by value instead of by reference makes the code simpler
and more conventional but should not change the behavior at all.

Just as an FYI, I sent the same fix when the warning first hit which was
recently accepted:

https://cgit.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/linux/commit/?id=672e78cab819ebe31e3b9b8abac367be8a110472

Just waiting for it to hit mainline.

Cheers,
Nathan
