bonding: avoid defaulting hard_header_len to ETH_HLEN on slave removal

On slave list updates, the bonding driver computes its hard_header_len
as the maximum of all enslaved devices's hard_header_len.
If the slave list is empty, e.g. on last enslaved device removal,
ETH_HLEN is used.

Since the bonding header_ops are set only when the first enslaved
device is attached, the above can lead to header_ops->create()
being called with the wrong skb headroom in place.

If bond0 is configured on top of ipoib devices, with the
following commands:

ifup bond0
for slave in $BOND_SLAVES_LIST; do
	ip link set dev $slave nomaster
done
ping -c 1 <ip on bond0 subnet>

we will obtain a skb_under_panic() with a similar call trace:
	skb_push+0x3d/0x40
	push_pseudo_header+0x17/0x30 [ib_ipoib]
	ipoib_hard_header+0x4e/0x80 [ib_ipoib]

	SyS_sendto+0xe/0x10
	do_syscall_64+0x67/0x180

This change addresses the issue avoiding updating the bonding device
hard_header_len when the slaves list become empty, forbidding to
shrink it below the value used by header_ops->create().

The bug is there since commit 54ef3137 ("[PATCH] bonding: Handle large
hard_header_len") but the panic can be triggered only since
commit fc791b63 ("IB/ipoib: move back IB LL address into the hard
header").
