Btrfs: check return value of open_bdev_exclusive properly
commit 7f59203abeaf18bf3497b308891f95a4489810ad upstream. Hit this problem while testing RAID1 failure stuff. open_bdev_exclusive returns ERR_PTR(), not NULL. So change the return value properly. This is important if you accidently specify a device that doesn't exist when trying to add a new device to an array, you will panic the box dereferencing bdev.
