Ok, I never liked linked lists actually. :)

This one can be completely eliminated (hmm, it does not even exist so
far) by having per-node bitmask of used/free entries - it will be 
even faster than existing access and will not require locks (due to RCU

So, this allows to remove additional hlist_node structure from socket
(and change netlink one to not use it in broadcasting, so for netlink
sockets it will be moved into private netlink structure).
