Subject: lockd: ensure we tear down any live sockets when socket creation
 fails during lockd_up

commit 679b033df48422191c4cac52b610d9980e019f9b upstream.

We had a Fedora ABRT report with a stack trace like this:

Evidently, we created some lockd sockets and then failed to create
others. make_socks then returned an error and we tried to tear down the
svc, but svc->sv_permsocks was not empty so we ended up tripping over
the BUG() in svc_destroy().

Fix this by ensuring that we tear down any live sockets we created when
socket creation is going to return an error.
