Subject: [PATCH net 3/3] hinic: fix bug of send pkts while setting channels

When calling hinic_close in hinic_set_channels, netif_carrier_off
and netif_tx_disable are excuted, and TX host resources are freed
after that. Core may call hinic_xmit_frame to send pkt after
netif_tx_disable within a short time, so we should judge whether
carrier is on before sending pkt otherwise the resources that
have already been freed in hinic_close may be accessed.

Fixes: 2eed5a8b614b ("hinic: add set_channels ethtool_ops support")
