In bnxt_free_all_filters(), all the filters attached to a vnic are removed.
But each of these filters hold a backreference ptr to the vnic and they
need to be reset to NULL now. Otherwise, during a normal testpmd quit, as
part of dev_close_op(), first bnxt_free_all_filters() is invoked in
dev_stop, followed by bnxt_free_filter_mem() from bnxt_uninit_resources(),
which finds a filter with a vnic back reference ptr and now
bnxt_hwrm_clean_up_l2_filter() also tries to remove the filter from the
vnic's filter list which was already done as part of
