mtd is getting NULL dereferenced in jffs2_parse_param(), while checking condition
for pool size when, case: opt is Opt_rp_size hits.

- fs/jffs2/super.c
The bug seems to get triggered in this line:

if (opt > c->mtd->size)
	return invalf(fc, "jffs2: Too large reserve pool specified, max is %llu KB",
				      c->mtd->size / 1024);


Fix this by adding a NULL check for 'c->mtd' device and return invalf(); which wraps 
errorf() and returns -EINVAL for convenience, which allows userspace to collect them 
directly.
