Crap, I screwed it up again.  Here is a v2 which moves the atomic
call into the RCU callback as otherwise the socket can be freed from
another path while we await the RCU callback.

It is wrong to schedule a work from sk_destruct using the socket
as the memory reserve because the socket will be freed immediately
after the return from sk_destruct.

Instead we should do the deferral prior to sk_free.

This patch does just that.
