    ms/neigh: no need to call lookup_neigh_parms in neigh_parms_alloc
    neigh_table.parms always exist and is initialized,kmemdup
    can use it to create new neigh_parms, actually lookup_neigh_parms
    here will return neigh_table.parms too.

    (cherry picked from commit cf89d6b2803ab99ac596f95d585c3057d2be645c)
    Otherwise after b0bb814 ("ms/neigh: only allow init_net to change the default
    neigh_parms") we get errors on neigh parms allocation.
