Subject: [PATCH net] dn_route: set rt neigh to blackhole_netdev instead of loopback_dev in ifdown

Like other places in ipv4/6 dst ifdown, change to use blackhole_netdev
instead of pernet loopback_dev in dn dst ifdown.

Since commit faab39f63c1f ("net: allow out-of-order netdev
unregistration"), in .ifdown it's been no longer safe to use loopback_dev
that may be freed before other netdev.

Fixes: faab39f63c1f ("net: allow out-of-order netdev unregistration")
