When a PCB is detached it leaves the so_pcb field cleared while
waiting to reclaim the softnet_lock. The ipsec code path basically
dereferences PCB->socket->PCB and the last link is then broken.
My current solution is to move the section
so->so_pcb = 0;
/* sofree drop's the socket's lock */
to the end of in_pcbdetach() (and similar for in6_pcbdetach()).
However, that's not the only issue with the locking. The final
solution may look different.
