Subject: [PATCH] net/mlx5e/core/en_fs: fix pointer dereference after free in
 mlx5e_execute_l2_action

hn is being kfree'd in mlx5e_del_l2_from_hash and then dereferenced
by accessing hn->ai.addr

Fix this by copying the MAC address into a local variable for its safe use
in all possible execution paths within function mlx5e_execute_l2_action.

Addresses-Coverity-ID: 1417789
Fixes: eeb66cdb6826 ("net/mlx5: Separate between E-Switch and MPFS")
