[PATCH net] gtp: fix an use-before-init in gtp_newlink()

*_pdp_find() from gtp_encap_recv() would trigger a crash when a peer
sends GTP packets while creating new GTP device.

RIP: 0010:gtp1_pdp_find.isra.0+0x68/0x90 [gtp]
<SNIP>
Call Trace:
 <IRQ>
 gtp_encap_recv+0xc2/0x2e0 [gtp]

 ? ip_protocol_deliver_rcu+0x1b0/0x1b0

gtp_encap_enable() should be called after gtp_hastable_new() otherwise
*_pdp_find() will access the uninitialized hash table.
