Default - kernel panic with small gfs2 filesystems - 1 RG

In the unlikely setup where there's only one resource group in the gfs2 filesystem, gfs2_rgrpd_get_next() returns a NULL rgd that is not dealt with properly, causing a kernel NULL ptr dereference. This patch fixes this issue.

This bug was reported in rhel6: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=838638
