      [NETLINK]: cb_lock does not needs ref count on sk · 96c36023
      Herbert Xu authored
      
      
      Here is a little optimisation for the cb_lock used by netlink_dump.
      While fixing that race earlier, I noticed that the reference count
      held by cb_lock is completely useless.  The reason is that in order
      to obtain the protection of the reference count, you have to take
      the cb_lock.  But the only way to take the cb_lock is through
      dereferencing the socket.
      
      That is, you must already possess a reference count on the socket
      before you can take advantage of the reference count held by cb_lock.
      As a corollary, we can remve the reference count held by the cb_lock.

      [NET]: kill gratitious includes of major.h · 5523662c

      	A lot of places in there are including major.h for no reason
      whatsoever.  Removed.  And yes, it still builds.
      
      	The history of that stuff is often amusing.  E.g. for net/core/sock.c
      the story looks so, as far as I've been able to reconstruct it: we used to
      need major.h in net/socket.c circa 1.1.early.  In 1.1.13 that need had
      disappeared, along with register_chrdev(SOCKET_MAJOR, "socket", &net_fops)
      in sock_init().  Include had not.  When 1.2 -> 1.3 reorg of net/* had moved
      a lot of stuff from net/socket.c to net/core/sock.c, this crap had followed...

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
