i40iw: avoid potential uninitialized variable use

gcc finds that the i40iw_make_cm_node() function in the recently added
i40iw driver uses an uninitilized variable as an index into an array
if CONFIG_IPV6 is disabled and the driver uses IPv6 mode:

drivers/infiniband/hw/i40iw/i40iw_cm.c: In function 'i40iw_make_cm_node':
drivers/infiniband/hw/i40iw/i40iw_cm.c:2206:52: error: 'arpindex' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
  ether_addr_copy(cm_node->rem_mac, iwdev->arp_table[arpindex].mac_addr);

As far as I can tell, this code path can not be used because the ipv4
variable is always set with CONFIG_IPV6 is disabled, but it's better
to be sure and prevent the undefined behavior, as well as shut up
that warning in a proper way.

This adds an 'else' clause for the case we get the warning about,
causing the function to return an error in a controlled way.
To avoid adding extra mess with combined io()/#ifdef clauses,
I'm also converting the existing #ifdef into a more readable
if(IS_ENABLED()) check.
