  netdev-linux: Fix segfault in update_lag().

A bissect shows that commit d22f892 ("netdev-linux: monitor and offload
LAG slaves to TC") introduced netdev_linux_update_lag(), which is now
triggering a crash in the "datapath - ping over bond" test in

This fixes the crash by simply returning in case netdev_from_name()
returns NULL, as this should indicate the master is not attached to the

Additionally, netdev_linux_update_lag() isn't "clearing" the netdev
reference it gets from netdev_from_name(), meaning its ref_cnt is
incremented but never decremented. Thus, also call netdev_close() before
