Crash logs indicate an infrequent crash in RenderLayer::updateLayerPosition().

Code inspection reveals that we might dereference a nullptr for elements with enclosing parents with a layer. The search for this parent might end without finding anything, resulting in the ancestor being set to nullptr.

This patch adds the missing nullptr check to avoid this possibility.
