As discussed a few times before, I'm still not really excited about adding a
new LSM hook in skb_recv_datagram() when we already have hooks to control
locally consumed network traffic. However, I will admit that these existing
hooks do not allow the LSM to block and query userspace for an access
decision like you are trying to do with TOMOYO. I would prefer not to see
this new LSM hook added but I do not have an alternative solution to your
problem so I can't in good conscience completely object to this patch.

Regardless, I have a few comments which are included below ...

With this patch the 'cpu_flags' variable will be used in two different
if-blocks in this function and declared locally within each block. Please
move the 'cpu_flags' declaration to the top of the function so it only needs
to be declared once.

I might be missing something here, but why do you need to do a skb_peek()
again? You already have the skb and the sock, just do the unlink.

Two things. First you can probably just call kfree_skb() instead of
skb_free_datagram(). Second, why not move the 'no_peek' code to just
before 'no_packet'?
