But this is suboptimally coded, and is asking for the warning.

Anything returning a pointer by reference is asking for trouble
in my opinion.

The correct thing to do is to make create_v{4,6}_sock() return
the "struct socket *" as an error pointer.

No more ambiguous initializations, no more warnings.
