net/ipv6: Put target net when address dump fails due to bad attributes

If tgt_net is set based on IFA_TARGET_NETNSID attribute in the dump
request, make sure all error paths call put_net.

Fixes: 6371a71f ("net/ipv6: Add support for dumping addresses for a specific device")
Fixes: ed6eff11 ("net/ipv6: Update inet6_dump_addr for strict data checking")
