    [IPV4]: Remove unnecessary test for the loopback device from inetdev_destroy
    Currently we never call unregister_netdev for the loopback device so
    it is impossible for us to reach inetdev_destroy with the loopback
    device.  So the test in inetdev_destroy is unnecessary.
    Further when testing with my network namespace patches removing
    unregistering the loopback device and calling inetdev_destroy works
    fine so there appears to be no reason for avoiding unregistering the
    loopback device.
