net: handle no dst on skb in icmp6_send

Andrey reported the following while fuzzing the kernel with syzkaller:

kasan: CONFIG_KASAN_INLINE enabled
kasan: GPF could be caused by NULL-ptr deref or user memory access

icmp6_send / icmpv6_send is invoked for both rx and tx paths. In both
cases the dst->dev should be preferred for determining the L3 domain
if the dst has been set on the skb. Fallback to the skb->dev if it has
not. This covers the case reported here where icmp6_send is invoked on
Rx before the route lookup.

Fixes: 5d41ce2 ("net: icmp6_send should use dst dev to determine L3 domain")
