3.5.7.10 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

commit 9979a55a833883242e3a29f3596676edd7199c46 upstream.

The WARN_ON(in_interrupt()) in net_enable_timestamp() can get false
positive, in socket clone path, run from softirq context :

[ 3641.624425] WARNING: at net/core/dev.c:1532 net_enable_timestamp+0x7b/0x80()

Its safe at this point because the parent socket owns a reference
on the netstamp_needed, so we cant have a 0 -> 1 transition, which
requires to lock a mutex.

Instead of refining the check, lets remove it, as all known callers
are safe. If it ever changes in the future, static_key_slow_inc()
will complain anyway.
