Segmentation fault may occur without checking if memzone
reserves succeed or not.

This patch fixed it.

Fixes: 50247fe03fe0 ("test/timer: exercise new APIs in secondary process")

v2:
* use TEST_ASSERT_NOT_NULL check "mz" instead of checking
  the test_info pointer.

The sentence is confusing. Please try to make it more logical.
Something like "It was potentially dereferencing a null pointer.
It is fixed by checking the pointer before dereferencing."

Error messages should not be split. I makes search difficult.
Please fix it in this patch while touching this line.
