netlabel: Deletion of an unnecessary check before the function call “cipso_v4_doi_putdef”

Author: Markus Elfring <>

The cipso_v4_doi_putdef() function tests whether its argument is NULL and then
returns immediately. Thus the test around the call is not needed.

This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.
