Maybe is better to create an helper function that other transports can
use for the same purpose or we can put this code in the
vsock_assign_transport() and set this flag only when the 'psk' argument
is not NULL (this is the case when it's called by the transports when we
receive a new connection request and 'psk' is the listener socket).

The second way should allow us to support all the transports without
touching them.

svm_flag is always initialized to 0 in vsock_addr_init(), so this
assignment is the first one and it's okay, but to avoid future issues
I'd use |= here to set the flag.
