Oh, okay. Thanks for pointing it out.

I noticed __sock_map_lookup_elem called from sock_map_lookup_sys has the
same WARN_ON_ONCE check. Looks like it can be cleaned up.

Granted, __sock_map_lookup_elem also gets invoked by sockmap BPF helpers
for redirecting (bpf_msg_redirect_map, bpf_sk_redirect_map). But we
always run sk_skb and sk_msg progs RCU read lock held.
