[PATCH v2] general protection fault in sock_has_perm

In the absence of commit a4298e4522d6 ("net: add SOCK_RCU_FREE socket
flag") and all the associated infrastructure changes to take advantage
of a RCU grace period before freeing, there is a heightened
possibility that a security check is performed while an ill-timed
setsockopt call races in from user space.  It then is prudent to null
check sk_security, and if the case, reject the permissions.

Because of the nature of this problem, hard to duplicate, no clear
path, this patch is a simplified band-aid for stable trees lacking the
infrastructure for the series of commits leading up to providing a
suitable RCU grace period.  This adjustment is orthogonal to
infrastructure improvements that may nullify the needed check, but
could be added as good code hygiene in all trees.
