Also included is a change for ipv6 multicasting, where a cloned skb
was being queued on the wrong sk (and the allocation wasn't being
checked.) I also added code to lock the hashes following the ipv4

The SOCKHASH_LOCK() addition is not necessary, in fact the correct
change is to remove them from the ipv4 UDP version. Just like in
udp_v4_lookup/udp_v6_lookup we know that the code is always called
from within a BH handler, so the bh atomicity would be spurious.
