Subject[PATCH] xfrm: check bundle policy existance before dereferencing it
Date
Fix the bundle validation code to not assume having a valid policy.
When we have multiple transformations for a xfrm policy, the bundle
instance will be a chain of bundles with only the first one having
the policy reference. When policy_genid is bumped it will expire the
first bundle in the chain which is equivalent of expiring the whole
chain.
