SubjectRe: Possible FIFO race in lock_sock()

Don't know what this impacts, perhaps out of order data on a pipe?

There's a race to get the lock, who cares?

If multiple people are playing with the socket, the exact pieces of
data they happen to get is random unless the application does
it's own locking.
