[PATCH 4.18 052/197] apparmor: fix an error code in __aa_create_ns()




4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 0a6b29230ec336189bab32498df3f06c8a6944d8 ]

We should return error pointers in this function.  Returning NULL
results in a NULL dereference in the caller.

Fixes: 73688d1ed0b8 ("apparmor: refactor prepare_ns() and make usable from different views")
