[llvm/Support] Don't crash on empty nullptr ranges when decoding LEBs

Summary:
If the decoding functions are called with both start and end pointers
being nullptr, the function will crash due to a nullptr dereference.
This happens because the function does not recognise nullptr as a valid
end pointer.

Obviously, nobody is going to pass null pointers here deliberately, but
it can happen indirectly (as it did for me), when calling these
functions on an ArrayRef, as a default-initialized empty ArrayRef will
have both begin() and end() pointers equal to nullptr.

The fix is to simply remove the nullptr check. Passing nullptr for "end"
with a valid "begin" pointer will still work, as one cannot reach
nullptr by incrementing a valid pointer without triggerring UB.
