[PATCH v18 69/80] c/r: introduce checkpoint/restore methods to struct proto_ops

This adds new 'proto_ops' function for checkpointing and restoring
sockets. This allows the checkpoint/restart code to compile nicely
when, e.g., AF_UNIX sockets are selected as a module.

It also adds a function 'collecting' a socket for leak-detection
during full-container checkpoint. This is useful for those sockets
that hold references to other "collectable" objects. Two examples are
AF_UNIX buffers which reference the socket of origin, and sockets that
have file descriptors in-transit.
