In ip6_neigh_lookup(), we must not return errors coming from
neigh_create(): if creation of a neighbour entry fails, the lookup should
return NULL, in the same way as it's done in __neigh_lookup().

Otherwise, callers legitimately checking for a non-NULL return value of
the lookup function might dereference an invalid pointer.

For instance, on neighbour table overflow, ndisc_router_discovery()
crashes ndisc_update() by passing ERR_PTR(-ENOBUFS) as 'neigh' argument.

I see now -- dst_neigh_lookup handles that check and I forgot to add the
same to the new ip6_neigh_lookup.

Thanks for the patch.

Applied and queued up for -stable, thank you.
