Which IMHO is completely fine. If we then still clone the SKB we can't
do anything with it, since the point would be to ... send it back to the
socket, but it's gone.

Nothing to fix here, I'd think. If you wanted to get a copy back that
gives you the status of the SKB, it should not come as a huge surprise
that you have to keep the socket open for that :)

Having the ACK skb will just make us do more work by handing it back
to skb_complete_wifi_ack() at TX status time, which is supposed to put
it into the socket's error queue, but if the socket is closed ... no
point in that.
