Subject[PATCH] tracefs: Fix NULL pointer dereference when no lockdown is used
Commit 757ff7244358 ("tracefs: Restrict tracefs when the kernel is locked
down") added infrastructure for restricting tracefs access when lockdown
is enabled. It however broke tracefs operation when no lockdown is used.
Fix this issue by adding missing check for a NULL ->open() callback.
