[Swan] KLIPS pfkey_create kernel oops v3.17

Hi Paul,

The fix I sent to list was just to make KLIPS stop crashing my kernel, it was not a final fix since it overwrote sock parameter skc_daddr: Foreign IPv4 addr, so I changed my fix to save the key_pid into the void * sk_user_data, seems like a better alternative.
