this patch test for null pointer in rtsock.c

system panics on rtsock.c for the reason that rt->rt_ifp->if_addr have a null
It is not clear the reason rt->rt_ifp->if_addr have a null pointer but when 
try to access rt->rt_ifp->if_addr->ifa_addr near line 1578 of rtsock.c the
system panics... 

I also insert code of RTSOCK_LOCK/RTSOCK_UNLOCK  on any ioctl call, and since
than, the system does not panic any more..

A more study must be done where/why rt->rt_ifp->if_addr comes NULL,  and in
that case the colunm Netif from the command: netstat -4rn  either shows ""
(nothing)  or "---".  when this happens, the system panics some minutes
