net: add real socket cookies
A long standing problem in netlink socket dumps is the use of kernel socket addresses as cookies. 1) It is a security concern. 2) Sockets can be reused quite quickly, so there is no guarantee a cookie is used once and identify a flow. 3) request sock, establish sock, and timewait socks for a given flow have different cookies. Part of our effort to bring better TCP statistics requires to switch to a different allocator. In this patch, I chose to use a per network namespace 64bit generator, and to use it only in the case a socket needs to be dumped to netlink. (This might be refined later if needed) Note that I tried to carry cookies from request sock, to establish sock, then timewait sockets.
