linux - Don't log "can't accept" error on close. (#8)

This is a hack which silences an extraneous log message.  The message
gets reported due to an apparent race condition involving the
`sktLoop()` function in `linux/hci/hci.go`.  This function implements a
socket-read loop that only returns on error.  It is called as a
Goroutine, and typically continues to run until the process terminates.

If client code closes the owning `Device` at an inopportune time
(presumably during the socket read), the `Read()` call returns an
`io.EOF` error, which causes `NewDevice()` to log the following message:

    can't accept: skt: EOF

Since the API permits the user to close the device at any time, this
error message is extraneous.

This commit simply inhibits the logging of the error message in case of
EOF.  This is not a long-term solution, but it does fix the visible
