We do. When epfile->dentry == NULL, ffs_epfiles_destroy() will do only
kfree(epfiles). We want to do it.

We don't want to have ffs->epfiles being equal NULL before calling
ffs_func_eps_disable(), which iterates on this table.

Hmm, we could also change ffs_func_eps_disable() to not touch
ffs->epfiles if it's NULL. It seems to be better solution.
