apparmor: fix bad lock balance when introspecting policy

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1235977

The profile introspection seq file has a locking bug when policy is viewed
from a virtual root (task in a policy namespace), introspection from the
real root is not affected.

The test for root
    while (parent) {
is correct for the real root, but incorrect for tasks in a policy namespace.
This allows the task to walk backup the policy tree past its virtual root
causing it to be unlocked before the virtual root should be in the p_stop
fn.

This results in the following lockdep back trace:
