Would you like me to send a v5, or do you prefer to let a future series
fix all the racy reads and writes at once?

Personally, I feel it'd look strange to have a READ_ONCE() only in
inet_diag_dump_icsk(), while the rest of the stack accesses it
directly. But just let me know if you feel otherwise and I'll post a
v5.
