Logic looks correct to me thanks for the details, please put those in
the commit so we don't lose them. Can you also add a comment where it
makes most sense in the code? This is a bit subtle and we don't want
to miss it later. Probably in tcp_update_ulp near that WRITE_ONCE would
do. It doesn't need to be too verbose but something as simple as,

"{WRITE|READ}_ONCE wrappers needed around sk_prot to protect unlocked
 reads in sk_clone_lock"
