Subject: [PATCH] Fix KDC null deref on TGS inner body null server

After the KDC decodes a FAST inner body, it does not check for a null
server.  Prior to commit 39548a5b17bbda9eeb63625a201cfd19b9de1c5b this
would typically result in an error from krb5_unparse_name(), but with
the addition of get_local_tgt() it results in a null dereference.  Add
a null check.

Reported by Joseph Sutton of Catalyst.


In MIT krb5 releases 1.14 and later, an authenticated attacker can
cause a null dereference in the KDC by sending a FAST TGS request with
no server field.
