Subject: [PATCH] net: page_pool: Fix NULL pointer dereference in page_pool_unlist()

When the the hlist_node pool->user.list is in an in an unhashed state,
calling hlist_del() leads to a NULL pointer dereference. This happens
e. g. when rmmod'ing the mt7921e (mediatek wifi driver) kernel module.
An additional check fixes the issue.

Fixes: 083772c9f972dc ("net: page_pool: record pools per netdev")

Since kernel version linux-next-20231129 I noticed that my MSI Alpha 15
laptop would hang on shutdown with blinking capslock, indicating a
kernel panic. I bisected the error to commit 083772c9f972dcc24891 an noticed that
error can also be triggered by rmmod'ing the mt7921e (mediatek wifi
driver) kernel module, giving the following backtrace (using the guess
unwinder):

The given patch addresses the issue by adding an extra check to
page_pool_unlist().
