From: Wang Nan <wangnan0@huawei.com>

If feed perf a symbol filter in cmdline and the result is empty,
pressing 'Enter' in the hist browser causes crash:

 # ./perf report perf.data   <-- Common mistake for beginners

Then press 'Enter':

 perf: Segmentation fault
 -------- backtrace --------

This is because 'perf.data' is interpreted as a symbol filter, and the
result is empty, so selection is empty. However,
hist_browser__toggle_fold() forgets to check it.

This patch simply return false when selection is NULL.
