That reminds me the more general problem we have with ->sk_user_data:
https://lore.kernel.org/netdev/20180117.142538.1972806008716856078.davem@davemloft.net/

We're not even guarateed that ->sk_user_data points to a struct l2tp_tunnel
(some external modules can still probably override it).

There were some locking rules defined for setting ->sk_user_data:
https://lore.kernel.org/netdev/20180124203541.3172-3-tom@quantonium.net/
Converting all users to either avoid using ->sk_user_data or using it
under the proper pre-conditions has been on my TODO list for a while...
I'll try to revive this effort.

Spurious "i". Vi user? :)
