The cost is enormous, we really can't use it here.

I have a patch that did top-level socket destruction using RCU,
and that didn't use synchronize_rcu(), and that killed connection
rates by up to %20.

I can only imagine what the cost would be if I had to add such a call
in there.

Really, I can't consider these changes seriously, as-is.
