[PATCH] fix audit_init failure path



Make audit_init() failure path handle situations where the audit_panic()
action is not AUDIT_FAIL_PANIC (default is AUDIT_FAIL_PRINTK).  Other uses
of audit_sock are not reached unless audit's netlink message handler is
properly registered.  Bug noticed by Peter Staubach.
