Subject[PATCH net] net: bridge: Fix a warning when del bridge sysfs
If adding bridge sysfs fails, br->ifobj will be NULL, there is no
need to delete its non-existent sysfs when deleting the bridge device,
otherwise, it will cause a warning. So, when br->ifobj == NULL,
directly return can fix this bug.

br_sysfs_addbr: can't create group bridge4/bridge
