This is still wrong.  We shouldn't be allowing bogus policies
to be in the system at all.

I have digged deeper and the problem was introduced by:

commit e682adf021be796940be6cc10c07be7f7398c220
Author: Fan Du <fan.du@...driver.com>
Date:   Thu Nov 7 17:47:48 2013 +0800

    xfrm: Try to honor policy index if it's supplied by user

Where the check for the user-supplied index is simply wrong in
verify_newpolicy_info.  So please fix it there.

Thanks!
