of: overlay: Fix out-of-bounds write in init_overlay_changeset()

If an overlay has no "__symbols__" node, but it has nodes without
"__overlay__" subnodes at the end (e.g. a "__fixups__" node), after
filling in all fragments for nodes with "__overlay__" subnodes,
"fragment = &fragments[cnt]" will point beyond the end of the allocated

Hence writing to "fragment->overlay" will overwrite unallocated memory,
which may lead to a crash later.

Fix this by deferring both the assignment to "fragment" and the
offending write afterwards until we know for sure the node has an
"__overlay__" subnode, and thus a valid entry in "fragments[]".

Fixes: 61b4de4e ("of: overlay: minor restructuring")
