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

> This isn't rocket science, just make a new sock_foo() interface
> that merely does the module owner setup.

Ok. I really think that we should do module refcounting in the struct
socket (sock) and struct sock (sk) separately. The only reason to do
module refcounting in sk is if protocol changes default callbacks
(i.e. sk->data_ready, etc). Many protocols don't and therefor there is
no need to keep track of those modules.
So here is new patch.
socket->owner protects socket->ops
sk->owner protects sk callbacks

Protocols that change default callbacks will have to do something like

sk_set_owner(sk, THIS_MODULE);

sk->data_read = xxx_data_ready;
...

Module will be released when sk is destroyed.
