I stumbled over this when thinking about the fallback processing. If for whatever reason
fallback==true during smc_connect(), the "if (smc->use_fallback)" below would set sock->state
to e.g. SS_CONNECTED. But in the fallback case sk_state keeps SMC_INIT. So during the next call
the SS_CONNECTING case above would break because sk_state in NOT SMC_ACTIVE, and we would end
up calling kernel_connect() again. Which seems to be no problem when kernel_connect() returns 
-EISCONN and we return this to the caller. But is this how it should work, or does it work by chance?
