bgpd/security: Fix double free of unknown attribute

Security issue: Quagga-2018-1114
See: https://www.quagga.net/security/Quagga-2018-1114.txt

It is possible for bgpd to double-free an unknown attribute. This can happen
via bgp_update_receive receiving an UPDATE with an invalid unknown attribute.
bgp_update_receive then will call bgp_attr_unintern_sub and bgp_attr_flush,
and the latter may try free an already freed unknown attr.

* bgpd/bgp_attr.c: (transit_unintern) Take a pointer to the caller's storage
  for the (struct transit *), so that transit_unintern can NULL out the
  caller's reference if the (struct transit) is freed.
  (cluster_unintern) By inspection, appears to have a similar issue.
  (bgp_attr_unintern_sub) adjust for above.
