Subject[PATCH 2/6] nilfs2: fix NULL pointer in nilfs_##name##_attr_release
Date
From: Nanyong Sun <sunnanyong@huawei.com>

In nilfs_##name##_attr_release, kobj->parent should not be
referenced because it is a NULL pointer. The release() method of
kobject is always called in kobject_put(kobj), in the implementation
of kobject_put(), the kobj->parent will be assigned as NULL before
call the release() method. So just use kobj to get the subgroups,
which is more efficient and can fix a NULL pointer reference problem.
