[PATCH v2] nsfs: warn if ns->ops is not provided

From: Changbin Du
Date: Wed Jun 09 2021 - 11:25:18 EST

We should not create inode for disabled namespace. A disabled namespace
sets its ns->ops to NULL. Kernel could panic if we try to create a inode
for such namespace.

Here is an example oops in socket ioctl cmd SIOCGSKNS when NET_NS is
disabled. Kernel panicked wherever nsfs trys to access ns->ops since the
proc_ns_operations is not implemented in this case.

[7.670023] Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000010
[7.670268] pgd = 32b54000
[7.670544] [00000010] *pgd=00000000
[7.671861] Internal error: Oops: 5 [#1] SMP ARM
[7.672315] Modules linked in:
[7.672918] CPU: 0 PID: 1 Comm: systemd Not tainted 5.13.0-rc3-00375-g6799d4f2da49 #16
[7.673309] Hardware name: Generic DT based system
[7.673642] PC is at nsfs_evict+0x24/0x30
[7.674486] LR is at clear_inode+0x20/0x9c

So let's print a warning for such unexpected request which to create the
nsfs inode. The issue in networking will be fixed in another change.
