Subject: [PATCH] rose: Fix NULL pointer dereference in rose_send_frame()

The syzkaller reported an issue:

KASAN: null-ptr-deref in range [0x0000000000000380-0x0000000000000387]

It triggers NULL pointer dereference when 'neigh->dev->dev_addr' is
called in the rose_send_frame(). It's the first occurrence of the
`neigh` is in rose_loopback_timer() as `rose_loopback_neigh', and
the 'dev' in 'rose_loopback_neigh' is initialized sa nullptr.

It had been fixed by commit 3b3fd068c56e3fbea30090859216a368398e39bf
("rose: Fix Null pointer dereference in rose_send_frame()") ever.
But it's introduced by commit 3c53cd65dece47dd1f9d3a809f32e59d1d87b2b8
("rose: check NULL rose_loopback_neigh->loopback") again.

We fix it by add NULL check in rose_transmit_clear_request(). When
the 'dev' in 'neigh' is NULL, we don't reply the request and just
clear it.

syzkaller don't provide repro, and I provide a syz repro like:
r0 = syz_init_net_socket$bt_sco(0x1f, 0x5, 0x2)
ioctl$sock_inet_SIOCSIFFLAGS(r0, 0x8914, &(0x7f0000000180)={'rose0\x00', 0x201})
r1 = syz_init_net_socket$rose(0xb, 0x5, 0x0)
bind$rose(r1, &(0x7f00000000c0)=@...l={0xb, @dev, @null, 0x0, [@null, @null, @netrom, @netrom, @default, @null]}, 0x40)
connect$rose(r1, &(0x7f0000000240)=@...rt={0xb, @dev={0xbb, 0xbb, 0xbb, 0x1, 0x0}, @remote={0xcc, 0xcc, 0xcc, 0xcc, 0xcc, 0xcc, 0x1}, 0x1, @netrom={0xbb, 0xbb, 0xbb, 0xbb, 0xbb, 0x0, 0x0}}, 0x1c)
