Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 12/13] xfs: Fix UBSAN null-ptr-deref in xfs_sysfs_init

From: Eiichi Tsukata <devel@...ukata.com>

[ Upstream commit 96cf2a2c75567ff56195fe3126d497a2e7e4379f ]

If xfs_sysfs_init is called with parent_kobj == NULL, UBSAN
shows the following warning:

  UBSAN: null-ptr-deref in ./fs/xfs/xfs_sysfs.h:37:23
  member access within null pointer of type 'struct xfs_kobj'
  Call Trace:
   dump_stack+0x10e/0x195

   __ubsan_handle_type_mismatch_v1+0x32/0x40

Fix it by checking parent_kobj before the code accesses its member.
