internal/lsp/source: fix panic in addFieldItems

I have no idea what I did to trigger this, but I got a panic in this
codepath. Since this is for completion, it should be OK to simply make
this code defensive, without fully understanding the cause.

Here's the panic:
panic: runtime error: invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference
[signal SIGSEGV: segmentation violation code=0x1 addr=0x28 pc=0xc570f3]

goroutine 5914644 [running]:*completer).addFieldItems(0xc0996ee240, 0x1032020, 0xc0dd21e2a0, 0xc0b99b26f0)
        /usr/local/google/home/rfindley/src/tools/internal/lsp/source/completion/completion.go:1065 +0x193
