Subject: [PATCH net] hsr: fix slab-out-of-bounds Read in hsr_debugfs_rename()

hsr slave interfaces don't have debugfs directory.
So, hsr_debugfs_rename() shouldn't be called when hsr slave interface name
is changed.

Test commands:
    ip link add dummy0 type dummy
    ip link add dummy1 type dummy
    ip link add hsr0 type hsr slave1 dummy0 slave2 dummy1
    ip link set dummy0 name ap

Splat looks like:
[21071.899367][T22666] ap: renamed from dummy0
