    [SOCK]: Adds a rcu_dereference() in sk_filter
    It seems commit fda9ef5d679b07c9d9097aaf6ef7f069d794a8f9 introduced a RCU
    protection for sk_filter(), without a rcu_dereference()
    Either we need a rcu_dereference(), either a comment should explain why we
    dont need it. I vote for the former.
