I want to reiterate what has been stated earlier in reply to this
patch in that we shouldn't be modifying /proc/net/tcp* at all,
any change can break some application parsing the strings it
spits out.

Therefore only the inet_diag thing can have the fields added
in a backward compatible manner.

Actually, this is why I initially deleted this patch from my inbox
without applying it, I didn't see you remove the procfs code
based upon the feedback you got stating that was necessary.
