Subject[PATCH] audit: Use struct net not pid_t to remember the network namespce to reply in

While reading through 3.14-rc1 I found a pretty siginficant mishandling
of network namespaces in the recent audit changes.

In struct audit_netlink_list and audit_reply add a reference to the
network namespace of the caller and remove the userspace pid of the
caller. This cleanly remembers the callers network namespace, and
removes a huge class of races and nasty failure modes that can occur
when attempting to relook up the callers network namespace from a pid_t
(including the caller's network namespace changing, pid wraparound, and
the pid simply not being present).
