[Cocci] [PATCH 1/1] netlink: Deletion of an unnecessary check before the function call "__module_get"

The __module_get() 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.
