Those are way too generic names, please use snet_ prefix as you did in
other places.


I believe snet should be converted to RCU instead of rw locks.

You can have better distribution if not simply cut off the remainder.
Also it is a rather expensive operation.

Below comments looks a little bit weird, was it generated automatically
by editor?

What about single error exiting point?

No need for double braces.
