[PATCH 4.4 076/266] team: fix possible recursive locking when add slaves

From: Hangbin Liu <liuhangbin@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 925b0c841e066b488cc3a60272472b2c56300704 ]

If we add a bond device which is already the master of the team interface,
we will hold the team->lock in team_add_slave() first and then request the
lock in team_set_mac_address() again. The functions are called like:

- team_add_slave()
 - team_port_add()
   - team_port_enter()
     - team_modeop_port_enter()
       - __set_port_dev_addr()
         - dev_set_mac_address()
           - bond_set_mac_address()
             - dev_set_mac_address()
  	       - team_set_mac_address

Although team_upper_dev_link() would check the upper devices but it is
called too late. Fix it by adding a checking before processing the slave.

v2: Do not split the string in netdev_err()
