The tcp:tcp_set_state probe is tcp_set_state(), so it's only going to
fire for TCP sessions. It's not broken, and we could add a
sctp:sctp_set_state as well. Replacing tcp:tcp_set_state with
inet_sk_set_state is feeling like we might be baking too much
implementation detail into the tracepoint API.

If we must have inet_sk_set_state, then must we also delete tcp:tcp_set_state?
