nilfs2: fix NULL pointer dereference in nilfs_load_super_block()

According to the report from Slicky Devil, nilfs caused kernel oops at
nilfs_load_super_block function during mount after he shrank the
partition without resizing the filesystem:

 BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000048

This turned out due to a defect in an error path which runs if the
calculated location of the secondary super block was invalid.

This patch fixes it and eliminates the reported oops.
