af-packet: fix oops when socket is not present
Due to a NULL dereference, the following patch is causing oops in normal trafic condition: commit c0de08d04215031d68fa13af36f347a6cfa252ca Author: Eric Leblond <eric@regit.org> Date:   Thu Aug 16 22:02:58 2012 +0000     af_packet: don't emit packet on orig fanout group This buggy patch was a feature fix and has reached most stable branches. When skb->sk is NULL and when packet fanout is used, there is a crash in match_fanout_group where skb->sk is accessed. This patch fixes the issue by returning false as soon as the socket is NULL: this correspond to the wanted behavior because the kernel as to resend the skb to all the listening socket in this case.
