[Cocci] [PATCH 1/1] net: pktgen: Deletion of an unnecessary check before the function call "proc_remove"

The proc_remove() function tests whether its argument is NULL and then
returns immediately. Thus the test around the call is not needed.

This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.
