Subject: [PATCH 1/3] nvme: do not check for ns on rw path

On the rw path, the ns is assumed to be set. However, a check is still
done, inherited from the time the code resided at nvme_queue_rq().

Eliminate this check, which also eliminates a smatch complain for not
doing proper NULL checks on ns.
