Commit d02fd6e7d293 ("macvlan: Fix one possible double free") handles
the case when register_netdevice() invokes ndo_uninit() on error and
as a result free the port. But 'macvlan_port_get_rtnl(dev))' check
(returns dev->rx_handler_data), which was added by this commit in order
to prevent double free, is not quite correct:

* for macvlan it always returns NULL because 'lowerdev' is the one that
  was used to register rx handler (port) in macvlan_port_create() as
  well as to unregister it in macvlan_port_destroy().
* for macvtap it always returns a valid pointer because macvtap registers
  its own rx handler before macvlan_common_newlink().

Fixes: d02fd6e7d293 ("macvlan: Fix one possible double free")
