[IPV4]: Remove unnecessary test for the loopback device from inetdev_destroy

Currently we never call unregister_netdev for the loopback device so
it is impossible for us to reach inetdev_destroy with the loopback
device.  So the test in inetdev_destroy is unnecessary.

Further when testing with my network namespace patches removing
unregistering the loopback device and calling inetdev_destroy works
fine so there appears to be no reason for avoiding unregistering the
loopback device.
