Not sure what you understand as a cleanup, but there's nothing
wrong with it and most things reported are either intentional or
false positives as you might have seen already. The only thing
one could do later on perhaps is to rename related functions to
have consistently a 'bpf' prefix instead of 'sk' since they
won't be under net/ anymore.
