libnvdimm, namespace: fix btt claim class crash

Maurice reports:

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000028
IP: holder+AF8-class+AF8-store+-0x253/0x2b0 +AFs-libnvdimm+AF0-

...while trying to reconfigure an NVDIMM-N namespace into 'sector' /
'btt' mode. The crash points to this line:

(gdb) li +ACo-(holder+AF8-class+AF8-store+-0x253)
0x7773 is in holder+AF8-class+AF8-store (drivers/nvdimm/namespace+AF8-devs.c:1420).

1420 nsindex +AD0- to+AF8-namespace+AF8-index(ndd, ndd-+AD4-ns+AF8-current)+ADs-

...where we are failing because ndd is NULL due to NVDIMM-N dimms not
supporting labels.

Long story short, default to the BTTv1 format in the label-less /
NVDIMM-N case.
