[GFS2] panic after can't parse mount arguments

When you try to mount gfs2 with -o garbage, the mount fails and the gfs2
superblock is deallocated and becomes NULL. The vfs comes around later
on and calls gfs2_kill_sb. At this point the hidden gfs2 superblock
pointer (sb->s_fs_info) is NULL and dereferencing it through
gfs2_meta_syncfs causes the panic. (the other function call to
gfs2_delete_debugfs_file() succeeds because this function already checks
for a NULL pointer)
