audit: no need to walk list in audit_inode if name is NULL
If name is NULL then the condition in the loop will never be true. Also, with this change, we can eliminate the check for n->name == NULL since the equivalence check will never be true if it is. Signed-off-by: Jeff Layton <jlayton@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
