    There is no way in hell that you are going to
    add a function call for every time we set the
    socket owner of a SKB.
    That is a critical path and it happens millions upon
    millions of times a second on a busy server.  Performance
    will be penalized by changes like this.
    I want all this junk #ifdef'd if it is necessary, in particular
    the new member added to sk_buff et al.  There is no way this stuff
    is going to happen in the default build, at least not in my networking
    tree :-)
