In that case pid Ingo straced was still valid and existed (ans stuck
probably in tcp_sendpage() - sysrq-t dump was messy), so process still
exist, but sock somewhat lost its reference to socket. AFICS all (three)
calls for sk_orphan() can not happen without state change to something
closing (like fin wait or close), except some linger things and
listening socket, which frees its connection requests.
