[PATCH RESEND v3] nbd_genl_status: null check for nla_nest_start

From: Navid Emamdoost <navid.emamdoost@gmail.com>

nla_nest_start may fail and return NULL. The check is inserted, and
errno is selected based on other call sites within the same source code.
Update: removed extra new line.
v3 Update: added release reply, thanks to Michal Kubecek for pointing

I'm resending the patch because there was apparent consensus of its
inclusion and it seems it was only overlooked. Some people may care
about this because of CVE-2019-16089.
