Subject[PATCH net] can: j1939: j1939_sk_bind(): return failure if netdev is down
When a netdev down event occurs after a successful call to
j1939_sk_bind(), j1939_netdev_notify() can handle it correctly.

But if the netdev already in down state before calling j1939_sk_bind(),
j1939_sk_release() will stay in wait_event_interruptible() blocked
forever. Because in this case, j1939_netdev_notify() won't be called and
j1939_tp_txtimer() won't call j1939_session_cancel() or other function
to clear session for ENETDOWN error, this lead to mismatch of
j1939_session_get/put() and jsk->skb_pending will never decrease to

To reproduce it use following commands:
1. ip link add dev vcan0 type vcan
2. j1939acd -r 100,80-120 1122334455667788 vcan0
3. presses ctrl-c and thread will be blocked forever

This patch adds check for ndev->flags in j1939_sk_bind() to avoid this
kind of situation and return with -ENETDOWN.

Fixes: 9d71dd0c7009 ("can: add support of SAE J1939 protocol")
