commit-graph.c: handle corrupt/missing trees

Apply similar treatment as in the previous commit to handle an unchecked
call to 'get_commit_tree_oid()'. Previously, a NULL return value from
this function would be immediately dereferenced with '->hash', and then
cause a segfault.

Before dereferencing to access the 'hash' member, check the return value
of 'get_commit_tree_oid()' to make sure that it is not NULL.

To make this check correct, a related change is also needed in
'commit.c', which is to check the return value of 'get_commit_tree'
before taking its address. If 'get_commit_tree' returns NULL, we
encounter an undefined behavior when taking the address of the return
value of 'get_commit_tree' and then taking '->object.oid'. (On my system,
this is memory address 0x8, which is obviously wrong).

Fix this by making sure that 'get_commit_tree' returns something
non-NULL before digging through a structure that is not there, thus
preventing a segfault down the line in the commit graph code.
