Subject: [PATCH] dlci: validate the net device in dlci_del()

commit 578a1310f2592ba90c5674bca21c1dbd1adf3f0a upstream.

We triggered an oops while running trinity with 3.4 kernel:

BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at 0000000100000d07
IP: [<ffffffffa0109738>] dlci_ioctl+0xd8/0x2d4 [dlci]

  [<ffffffff81478b69>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b

It's because the net device is not a dlci device.
