to look at the new patch set (#2).

sgsn: Fix broken ACL based authentication

The function sgsn_auth_state() in sgsn_auth.c checks if a subscriber
is allowed to enter the network or not. Depending on the auth policy
that is set via the VTY config, different checks apply:

SGSN_AUTH_POLICY_CLOSED: requires checking the net (MCC/MNC must
match) and also requires to check if the IMSI is inside the ACL
list. In this case check_net and check_acl are set to one.

SGSN_AUTH_POLICY_ACL_ONLY: only requires the ACL to be correct.
Here only check_acl is set to one.

In the code at the end of the function we can see that if checking
the network is required (check_acl=1) The authentication is granted
if MCC/MNC are correct. The function returns at that point, meaning,
that an evenually required ACL check is completely ignored.

This commit corrects the check logic.
