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).
