ipv4: Fix crash in dst_release when udp_sendmsg route lookup fails.

As reported by Eric:

[11483.697233] IP: [<c12b0638>] dst_release+0x18/0x60
 ...
[11483.697741] Call Trace:
[11483.697764]  [<c12fc9d2>] udp_sendmsg+0x282/0x6e0
[11483.697790]  [<c12a1c01>] ? memcpy_toiovec+0x51/0x70
[11483.697818]  [<c12dbd90>] ? ip_generic_getfrag+0x0/0xb0

The pointer passed to dst_release() is -EINVAL, that's because
we leave an error pointer in the local variable "rt" by accident.

NULL it out to fix the bug.
