Subject: [PATCH 4/6] netfilter: nfnetlink: fix splat due to incorrect socket memory accounting in skbuff clones

If we attach the sk to the skb from nfnetlink_rcv_batch(), then
netlink_skb_destructor() will underflow the socket receive memory
counter and we get warning splat when releasing the socket.

$ cat /proc/net/netlink
sk       Eth Pid    Groups   Rmem     Wmem     Dump     Locks     Drops     Inode
ffff8800ca903000 12  0      00000000 -54144   0        0 2        0        17942
                                     ^^^^^^

Rmem above shows an underflow.

And here below the warning splat:

skb->sk was only needed to lookup for the netns, however we don't need
this anymore since 633c9a840d0b ("netfilter: nfnetlink: avoid recurrent
netns lookups in call_batch") so this patch removes this manual socket
assignment to resolve this problem.
