AMP_MGR is getting derefernced in hci_phy_link_complete_evt(), when called from hci_event_packet() and there is a possibility, that hcon->amp_mgr may not be found when accessing after initialization of hcon.

- net/bluetooth/hci_event.c:4945
The bug seems to get triggered in this line:

bredr_hcon = hcon->amp_mgr->l2cap_conn->hcon;

Fix it by adding a NULL check for the hcon->amp_mgr before checking the ev-status.
