Subject: [PATCH][net-next] nexthop: fix incorrect allocation failure on nhg->spare

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@...onical.com>

The allocation failure check for nhg->spare is currently checking
the pointer nhg rather than nhg->spare which is never false. Fix
this by checking nhg->spare instead.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Logically dead code")
Fixes: 430a049190de ("nexthop: Add support for nexthop groups")
