When ena_detach is called, we first call ether_ifdetach(),
which destroys internal addresses of ifp. One such address
is ifp->if_addr->ifa_addr. Then during ena_destroy_device(),
if_link_state_change() is called, eventually trying to access
ifp->if_addr->ifa_addr->sa_family. This causes an access
to garbage memory and crashes the kernel.

Ticket [1] was opened to the FreeBSD community to add null
check in the code of if_link_state_change().
A fix was submitted in commit [2], however it was noted
that it is our driver's responsibilty to not call
if_link_state_change() after calling ether_ifdetach().

This commit makes sure if_link_state_change() is not called
after ether_ifdetach().
