TUN was designed to destroy it's socket on network namesapce shutdown. But this
will never happen for persistent device, because it's socket holds network
namespace.
This patch removes of holding network namespace by TUN socket and replaces it
by creating socket in init_net and then changing it's net it to desired one. On
shutdown socket is moved back to init_net prior to final put.

Hmm, maybe use sk_release_kernel(), as its should be the thing
associated with sk_change_net().

Or at least make intent clear, since its not obvious.
