ip_vs_fill_iph_skb_off() may not find an IP header, and gcc has
determined that ip_vs_sip_fill_param() then incorrectly accesses
the protocol fields:

net/netfilter/ipvs/ip_vs_pe_sip.c: In function 'ip_vs_sip_fill_param':
net/netfilter/ipvs/ip_vs_pe_sip.c:76:5: error: 'iph.protocol' may be used 
uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
  if (iph.protocol != IPPROTO_UDP)
net/netfilter/ipvs/ip_vs_pe_sip.c:81:10: error: 'iph.len' may be used 
uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
  dataoff = iph.len + sizeof(struct udphdr);

This adds a check for the ip_vs_fill_iph_skb_off() return code
before looking at the ip header data returned from it.
