nilfs2: fix NULL pointer dereference in nilfs_load_super_block()
According to the report from Slicky Devil, nilfs caused kernel oops at nilfs_load_super_block function during mount after he shrank the partition without resizing the filesystem: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000048 IP: [<d0d7a08e>] nilfs_load_super_block+0x17e/0x280 [nilfs2] *pde = 00000000 Oops: 0000 [#1] PREEMPT SMP ...

This patch fixes it and eliminates the reported oops.
