Perhaps I'm missing something but I don't think a minimum score would
work because compute_score() and compute_score2() have several ways of
returning a score of lets say 4 and I don't think they all mean the
socket is connected.  Why not just test the socket returned by
__udp4_lib_lookup() to see if it is connected in
udp_v4_early_demux()?  Something like:

        sk = __udp4_lib_lookup(net, iph->saddr, uh->source,
                               iph->daddr, uh->dest, dif,
        /* Only demux connected sockets or forwarding setups will break */
        if (sk && !inet_sk(sk)->inet_daddr)
