This is because when tunnel->dst_cache init fails, we free dev->tstats
once in ipip6_tunnel_init() and twice in sit_init_net(). This looks
redundant but its ndo_uinit() does not seem enough to clean up everything
here. So avoid this by setting dev->tstats to NULL after the first free,
at least for -net.
