On systems using cgroups and sockets extensively, like docker, kubernetes,
lxd, libvirt, a crash might happen when using linux 4.15.0-109-generic.
Revert the patch that disables sk_alloc cgroup refcounting when tasks
are added to net_prio cgroup.
Test that such environments where the issue is reproduced survive some hours of
uptime. A different bug was reproduced with a work-in-progress code and was not
reproduced with the culprit reverted.
The reverted commit fix a memory leak on similar scenarios. But a leak is
better than a crash. Two other bugs have been opened to track a real fix for
this issue and the leak.
