    ipv4: arp: fix a lockdep splat in arp_solicit

This is due to the 6th parameter of arp_send() needs to be NULL
for broatcase case, the above commit changed it to all-zero non-NULL
hw addr.

While at it you might enhance the label with "ipv4"?

That's excessive.

ARP is ipv4 and ipv4 only, in other protocols it has completely
different names.

OK, I see (shorter subject is always good).
I oriented myself at the original commit from Eric which was labeled the same.
Just had a look at the git-history [1] myself...

Hmm, 'man arp' does not mention as IPv4-only.
So, Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP) is the "IPv6 equivalent".
Just as a note to myself.
