I fail to understand how that can happen. Currently both of these
options are parsed as strings via:

#define fsparam_string_empty(NAME, OPT) \
        __fsparam(fs_param_is_string, NAME, OPT, fs_param_can_be_empty, NULL)

So if someone sets fsconfig(..., FSCONFIG_SET_STRING, "usrquota", NULL, ...)
we give an immediate

                if (!_key || !_value || aux) return -EINVAL;

from fsconfig() so we know that param->string cannot be NULL. If that
were the case we'd NULL deref in fs_param_is_string():

int fs_param_is_string(struct p_log *log, const struct fs_parameter_spec *p,
                       struct fs_parameter *param, struct fs_parse_result *result)
        if (param->type != fs_value_is_string ||
            (!*param->string && !(p->flags & fs_param_can_be_empty)))

So you're check above seems wrong. If I'm mistaken, please explain, how
this can happen in detail.
