Well, doing the copy under sk_lock is pretty common through all
protocols.  So I think it'd be safer to change the other path,
which is doing the odd thing here, i.e., ->mmap() grabbing the
socket lock while holding mmap_sem.

In fact, it would appear that we don't really need the socket lock
in ->mmap() since it only needs to ensure that pg_vec* doesn't
get yanked or changed.  So this patch should work:

packet: Avoid lock_sock in mmap handler

As the mmap handler gets called under mmap_sem, and we may grab
mmap_sem elsewhere under the socket lock to access user data, we
should avoid grabbing the socket lock in the mmap handler.

Since the only thing we care about in the mmap handler is for
pg_vec* to be invariant, i.e., to exclude packet_set_ring, we
can achieve this by simply using sk_receive_queue.lock.

I resisted the temptation to create a new spin lock because the
mmap path isn't exactly common.
