Subject[PATCH] idr: fix invalid ptr dereference on item delete
If an IDR contains a single entry at index==0, the underlying radix tree
has a single item in its root node, in which case
__radix_tree_lookup(index!=0) doesn't set its *@nodep argument (in
addition to returning NULL).

However, the tree itself is not empty, i.e. the tree root doesn't have

As a result, on an attempt to remove an index!=0 entry from such an IDR,
radix_tree_delete_item doesn't return early and calls
__radix_tree_delete with invalid parameters which are then dereferenced.
