l2tp: l2tp_ip - fix possible oops on packet receive

When a packet is received on an L2TP IP socket (L2TPv3 IP link
encapsulation), the l2tpip socket's backlog_rcv function calls
xfrm4_policy_check(). This is not necessary, since it was called
before the skb was added to the backlog. With CONFIG_NET_NS enabled,
xfrm4_policy_check() will oops if skb->dev is null, so this trivial
patch removes the call.

This bug has always been present, but only when CONFIG_NET_NS is
enabled does it cause problems. Most users are probably using UDP
encapsulation for L2TP, hence the problem has only recently
