Applied to net-next-2.6, thanks.  I'll queue up your simpler
version for -stable.

BTW, if most if not all of the sock_writeable() calls are now
sock_writeable_bias(), it's probably better to just add the
bias argument to sock_writable().

And a quick grep shows that only a few plain sock_writeable()
calls remain in the less often used protocols.
