I had a quick grep and found two places where km_policy_notify is passed
NULL as the policy:

$ grep -rn '\<km_policy_notify(NULL,' net/
net/xfrm/xfrm_user.c:2154: km_policy_notify(NULL, 0, &c);
net/key/af_key.c:2788: km_policy_notify(NULL, 0, &c);

They occur in xfrm_flush_policy() and pfkey_spdflush() respectively.
