Thanks.

Jakub, any opinions on if we should just throw an error if users try to
add a sock to a map with a parser but no verdict? At the moment we fall
through and add the socket, but it wont do any receive parsing/verdict.
At the moment I think its fine with above fix. The useful cases for RX
are parser+verdict, verdict, and empty. Where empty is just used for
redirects or other socket account tricks. Just something to keep in mind.
