wimax: fix oops in wimax_dev_get_by_genl_info() when looking up non-wimax iface
When a non-wimax interface is looked up by the stack, a bad pointer is returned when the looked-up interface is not found in the list (of registered WiMAX interfaces). This causes an oops in the caller when trying to use the pointer. Fix by properly setting the pointer to NULL if we don't exit from the list_for_each() with a found entry.
