When walking down the path on the server, it's possible to hit a
symlink. The path walking code assumes that the caller will handle that
situation properly, but cifs_get_root() isn't set up for it. This patch
prevents the oops by simply returning an error.

A better solution would be to try and chase the symlinks here, but that's
fairly complicated to handle.
