~120 chars in width :) We prefer to have a single code line split between
several screen lines, rather than split it manually in some weird places
just to justify width of 80 chars.

The FIXME was dedicated to the fact that I didn't understand what is
this. The code fragment is c&p from lots of examples of similar code
(check can, appletalk, etc. for example)

Oh... I nearly forgot about this. When writing this code, I examined
several existing address families. Usually (but not always) the sk_destruct
callback will purge sk_receive_queue and sk_write_queue. However I
didn't understand why and in which case should these queues (or others)
be purged. Could please one clarify this?

Added. BTW: I thought, that __exit functions aren't added to (or are
stripped from) the final vmlinux image. Am I wrong?

Fixed.

Unfortunately sockaddr things can't be done in a more clean way IMO.

No. proto_register changes the passed protocol struct during
registration.
