Regarding the two subsequent refcount_set(, 1) that look a bit strange
due to the sk_filter_charge() having refcount_inc() I presume ... can't
the refcount API handle such corner case? Or alternatively the let the
sk_filter_charge() handle it, for example:

bool __sk_filter_charge(struct sock *sk, struct sk_filter *fp)
{
	u32 filter_size = bpf_prog_size(fp->prog->len);

	/* same check as in sock_kmalloc() */
	if (filter_size <= sysctl_optmem_max &&
	    atomic_read(&sk->sk_omem_alloc) + filter_size < sysctl_optmem_max) {
		atomic_add(filter_size, &sk->sk_omem_alloc);
		return true;
	}
	return false;
}

And this goes to filter.h:

bool __sk_filter_charge(struct sock *sk, struct sk_filter *fp);

bool sk_filter_charge(struct sock *sk, struct sk_filter *fp)
{
	bool ret = __sk_filter_charge(sk, fp);
	if (ret)
		refcount_inc(&fp->refcnt);
	return ret;
}

... and let __sk_attach_prog() call __sk_filter_charge() and only fo
the second refcount_set()?
