Subject[PATCH bpf-next v2] af_unix: fix NULL pointer bug in unix_shutdown
Commit 94531cfcbe79 ("af_unix: Add unix_stream_proto for sockmap") 
introduced a bug for af_unix SEQPACKET type. In unix_shutdown, the
unhash function will call prot->unhash(), which is NULL for SEQPACKET.
And kernel will panic. On ARM32, it will show following messages: (it
likely affects x86 too).

Fix the bug by checking the prot->unhash is NULL or not first.

Kernel log:
