net: fix rcu use in ip_route_output_slow

__in_dev_get_rtnl(dev_out) is called while RTNL is not held, thus
triggers a lockdep fault.

At this point, we only perform a raw test of dev_out->ip_ptr being NULL,
we dont need to make sure ip_ptr cant changed right after.

We can use rcu_dereference_raw() for this.
