net/smc: Stop the CLC flow if no link to map buffers on

There might be a potential race between SMC-R buffer map and
link group termination.

smc_smcr_terminate_all()     | smc_connect_rdma()
                             | smc_conn_create()
for links in smcibdev        |
        schedule links down  |
                             | smc_buf_create()
                             |  \- smcr_buf_map_usable_links()
                             |      \- no usable links found,
                             |         (rmb->mr = NULL)
                             | smc_clc_send_confirm()
                             |  \- access conn->rmb_desc->mr[]->rkey
                             |     (panic)

During reboot and IB device module remove, all links will be set
down and no usable links remain in link groups. In such situation
smcr_buf_map_usable_links() should return an error and stop the
CLC flow accessing to uninitialized mr.
