I think the main problem comes from this commit in net tree ?

commit 80ad1d61e72d626e30ebe8529a0455e660ca4693

    net: do not call sock_put() on TIMEWAIT sockets
    commit 3ab5aee7fe84 ("net: Convert TCP & DCCP hash tables to use RCU /
    hlist_nulls") incorrectly used sock_put() on TIMEWAIT sockets.
    We should instead use inet_twsk_put()

I think you could safely ignore the warnings
because of (tcp: shrink tcp6_timewait_sock by one cache line) latest changes

patching file include/net/inet_timewait_sock.h
Hunk #1 succeeded at 141 (offset 5 lines).
Hunk #2 succeeded at 180 (offset 5 lines).

Please tell me if I need to resend, thanks
