    batman-adv: don't pass a NULL hard_iface to batadv_hardif_put
    In the case where hard_iface is NULL, the error path may pass a null
    pointer to batadv_hardif_put causing a null pointer dereference error.
    Avoid this by only calling the function if  hard_iface not null.
    Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1466456 ("Explicit null dereferenced")
    Fixes: 53dd9a68ba68 ("batman-adv: add multicast flags netlink support")
