SubjectRe: [PATCH/RFC] New module refcounting for net_proto_family

Yeah, I missed that one. Fixed in the new patch.

Good point. Alghough generic socket code does not necessarily reference
proto family module via struct sock. Only in case when family installed
non default callbacks (sk->dataready, sk->destruct, etc). Some families
(af_ipx for example) don't. But I think it's a good idea to refcount
struct sock anyway.

Ok. Here is the new patch.
We still need owner field in struct socket.
