xfrm: Fix potential null pointer dereference in xdst_queue_output
The net_device might be not set on the skb when we try refcounting. This leads to a null pointer dereference in xdst_queue_output(). It turned out that the refcount to the net_device is not needed after all. The dst_entry has a refcount to the net_device before we queue the skb, so it can't go away. Therefore we can remove the refcount on queueing to fix the null pointer dereference. Signed-off-by: Steffen Klassert <steffen.klassert@secunet.com>
