afs: Fix NULL deref in afs_dynroot_depopulate()

If an error occurs during the construction of an afs superblock, it's
possible that an error occurs after a superblock is created, but before
we've created the root dentry.  If the superblock has a dynamic root
(ie.  what's normally mounted on /afs), the afs_kill_super() will call
afs_dynroot_depopulate() to unpin any created dentries - but this will
oops if the root hasn't been created yet.

Fix this by skipping that bit of code if there is no root dentry.

This leads to an oops looking like:

	general protection fault, ...

which is oopsing on this line:


presumably because sb->s_root was NULL.
