The issue is triggered as this:

    -->verify_newpolicy_info  //check the index provided by user with XFRM_POLICY_MAX
			      //In my case, the index is 0x6E6BB6, so it pass the check.
    -->xfrm_policy_construct  //copy the user's policy and set xfrm_policy_timer
	--> __xfrm_policy_link //use the orgin dir, in my case is 2
	--> xfrm_gen_index   //generate policy index, there is 0x6E6BB6

then xfrm_policy_timer be fired

   --> xfrm_policy_id2dir  //get dir from (policy index & 7), in my case is 6
   --> xfrm_policy_delete
      --> __xfrm_policy_unlink //access policy_count[dir], trigger out of range access

Add xfrm_policy_id2dir check in verify_newpolicy_info, make sure the computed dir is
valid, to fix the issue.
