Thanks for the detailed analysis.

Indeed the updates to sk->sk_flags and calls to net_(dis|en)able_timestamp
should happen atomically, but this is not the case. The setsockopt
path holds the socket lock, but not all ioctl paths.

Perhaps we can take lock_sock_fast in sock_get_timestamp and
variants.
