That's just the patch which made the code testable by syzbot.  It didn't
introduce the bug.

I have no idea if calling hci_conn_del() is really the correct, thing.
I don't know the code at all.  Anyway, do some research and figure out
for sure what the correct thing is.

Also look for similar bugs in other places where hcon->amp_mgr is
dereferenced.  For example, amp_read_loc_assoc_final_data() seems to
have a similar bug.
