No, this is cruft.

Hmm, it seems that holding the lock while processing the queue isn't
really the way to go.  Perhaps comparing the pid of the other end of
the socket against the list in the context is best?

SH> what about UNIXCB(skb).creds and .secid?

Yep, okay.

SH> It looks like the above provides a way around needing
SH> CAP_NET_ADMIN to set SOCK_DBG in sock->sk_flags?  You can probably

SH> setsockopt.

Yep, okay.

SH> Sanity checking on sk_type, sk_state, backlog etc should probably

I check type and state on restart globally and per-protocol.  Backlog
could use it though too, yeah.
