[CIFS] Fix oops in cifs_create when nfsd server exports cifs mount

nfsd is passing null nameidata (probably the only one doing that)
on call to create - cifs was missing one check for this.

Note that running nfsd over a cifs mount requires specifying fsid on
the nfs exports entry and requires mounting cifs with serverino mount
