From: Björn Töpel <bjorn.topel@intel.com>

Prior this commit, when the struct socket object was being released,
the UMEM did not have its reference count decreased. Instead, this was
done in the struct sock sk_destruct function.

There is no reason to keep the UMEM reference around when the socket
is being orphaned, so in this patch the xdp_put_mem is called in the
xsk_release function. This results in that the xsk_destruct function
can be removed!

Note that, it still holds that a struct xsk_sock reference might still
linger in the XSKMAP after the UMEM is released, e.g. if a user does
not clear the XSKMAP prior to closing the process. This sock will be
in a "released" zombie like state, until the XSKMAP is removed.
