Hmm, not quite. See 2b85a34e911b ("net: No more expensive sock_hold()/sock_put()
on each tx") on how it is supposed to work.

See packet_create(): sk_alloc() inits sk_wmem_alloc to 1, sock_init_data() sets
sk_refcnt to 1. sock_hold()/__sock_put() pair in packet sock is managed when we
register/unregister proto hooks.

The other sock_put() in packet_release() to drop the final ref and call into
sk_free(), which drops the 1 ref on the sk_wmem_alloc from init time. Since you
got into __sk_free() via sock_wfree() destructor, your socket must have invoked
packet_release() prior to this (perhaps kernel destroying the process).

What kernel do you use?
