ext2_register_compression_module() fails to handle the
case where WAs are NULL because ext2_setup_super() has
not yet been called, i.e. when manually loading an algo
module before ext2 has been used to read or write anything.

Fix is to avoid calling ext2_lock_{rd,wr}_wa() before
the vmalloc() if the relevant WA is NULL.
