Subject: [PATCH net-next] net: ppp: don't call sk_chk_filter twice

From: Christoph Schulz <develop@...stov.de>

Commit 568f194e8bd16c353ad50f9ab95d98b20578a39d ("net: ppp: use
sk_unattached_filter api") causes sk_chk_filter() to be called twice when
setting a pass or active filter. The first call is from within get_filter().
The second one is through the call chain

  ppp_ioctl() --> sk_unattached_filter_create()
              --> __sk_prepare_filter()
              --> sk_chk_filter()

However, sk_chk_filter() is not idempotent as it sometimes replaces filter
codes. So running it a second time over the same filter does not work and
yields EINVAL. The net effect is that setting pass and/or active PPP filters
does not work anymore, since sk_unattached_filter_create() always returns
EINVAL due to the second (and erroneous) call to sk_chk_filter(), regardless
whether the filter was sane or not. So this patch simply removes the call to
sk_chk_filter() from within get_filter(). This is safe as the filter will
be checked by sk_chk_filter() later anyway.

This error is found in exactly the same way in the isdn4linux PPP driver, so
it is fixed there the same way.
