Subject: [PATCH 18/29] l2tp: WARN_ON rather than BUG_ON in l2tp_debugfs.c

l2tp_dfs_seq_start had a BUG_ON to catch a possible programming error in
l2tp_dfs_seq_open.

Since we can easily bail out of l2tp_dfs_seq_start, prefer to do that
and flag the error with a WARN_ON rather than crashing the kernel.
