audit: fix a net reference leak in audit_list_rules_send()
If audit_list_rules_send() fails when trying to create a new thread to send the rules it also fails to cleanup properly, leaking a reference to a net structure. This patch fixes the error patch and renames audit_send_list() to audit_send_list_thread() to better match its cousin, audit_send_reply_thread().
