Subject: [PATCH] net: ipv4: current group_info should be put after using.

This is a typical refcount leak exploitable by unprivileged users.
Current group_info had been got in ping_init_sock and
group_info->usage increased. But the usage hasn't decreased
anywhere in ping. This will make this group_info never freed.
