      Description

      Andreas noticed this comment in patches landing to upstream 4.12:

         commit cdfbabfb2f0ce983fdaa42f20e5f7842178fc01e
         Subject: net: Work around lockdep limitation in sockets that use sockets
      
         I noticed that lustre and ocfs don't create sockets
         through sock_create_kern() and thus they aren't marked as for-kernel,
         though they appear to be internal.  I wonder if these should do that so
         that they use the new set of lock keys.
      
      

      This ticket is for just updating the socklnd calls from sock_create() to sock_create_kern().
