How does this work? Existing readers could still read this
tun->tfiles[tun->numqueues - 1] before you NULL it. And,
_if_ the following sock_put() is the one frees it, you still miss
a RCU grace period.

                if (clean) {
                        RCU_INIT_POINTER(tfile->tun, NULL);
                        sock_put(&tfile->sk);


Thanks.
