Subject: [PATCH] net: atlantic: fix potential memory leak in aq_ndev_close()

If aq_nic_stop() fails, aq_ndev_close() returns err without calling
aq_nic_deinit() to release the relevant memory and resource, which
will lead to a memory leak.

We can fix it by deleting the if condition judgment and goto statement to
call aq_nic_deinit() directly after aq_nic_stop() to fix the memory leak.
