I thought this was already discussed and fixed somehow ?

Either we add kmemcheck annotations, or we switch sock->type from short
to int to avoid the hole, and possibly to speedup things...

[PATCH] net: kmemcheck annotation in struct socket

struct socket has a 16 bit hole that triggers kmemcheck warnings.

As suggested by Ingo, use kmemcheck annotations
