blkcg: don't call into policy draining if root_blkg is already gone
commit 0b462c89e31f7eb6789713437eb551833ee16ff3 upstream. While a queue is being destroyed, all the blkgs are destroyed and its ->root_blkg pointer is set to NULL. If someone else starts to drain while the queue is in this state, the following oops happens.

Fix it by skippping calling into policy draining if all the blkgs are already gone.
