I've attached a patch that fixes this. Rather than touching the calls to
`string-width' directly, it translates nil to the empty string. Either
way restores compatibility with Emacs 25, but translating nil to the
empty string seems preferable in that it saves later code from caring.

Even though it's a tiny change, I'm not a regular contributor or
particularly familiar with ibuffer's implementation, so any review is
appreciated. My copyright assignment is on file.
