I am not comfortable with this patch on it's own.  What kills the
daemons on network namespace exit?

I would be a little happier if the code also used sock_create_kern
instead of __sock_create. Now that it uses sk_change_net.  Just to make
the code more idiomatic.

But not actually guaranteeing that the namespace exit kills the threads
at this point seems pretty badly broken, as this idiom is not safe
unless we have a hard guarantee that the threads are dead.
