In btrfsic_process_superblock, argument state is dereferenced for
the variable fs_info and then checked for NULL. The patch fixes
this issue by returning an error if state is NULL and then assigns
fs_info.

Please improve the change message (besides avoiding a typo in the subject).

Would you like to add the tag “Fixes”?
