  Log Message:
  [NFC][CLANG] Fix nullptr dereference found by Coverity static analysis tool

Reported by Coverity:

  In clang::ASTContext::hasUniqueObjectRepresentations(clang::QualType, bool): Return value of function which returns null is dereferenced without checking.

  (Ty->isMemberPointerType()) {
      	//returned_null: getAs returns nullptr.
      	//var_assigned: Assigning: MPT = nullptr return value from getAs.
      const auto *MPT = Ty->getAs<MemberPointerType>();

     //dereference: Dereferencing a pointer that might be nullptr MPT when calling getMemberPointerInfo. (The virtual call resolves to
      return !ABI->getMemberPointerInfo(MPT).HasPadding;

ABIs assume the parameter passed to `getMemberPointerInfo` is non-null.
This patch checks type by doing a `if (const auto *MPT = Ty->getAs<MemberPointerType>())` instead.
