This patch sets the skb owner in the recv and send path for virtio.

For the send path, this solves the leak caused when
virtio_transport_purge_skbs() finds skb->sk is always NULL and therefore
never matches it with the current socket. Setting the owner upon
allocation fixes this.

For the recv path, this ensures correctness of accounting and also
correct transfer of ownership in vsock_loopback (when skbs are sent from
one socket and received by another).

Changes in v3:
- virtio/vsock: use skb_set_owner_sk_safe() instead of
- virtio/vsock: reject allocating/receiving skb if sk_refcnt==0 and WARN_ONCE
- Link to v2:

Changes in v2:
- virtio/vsock: add skb_set_owner_r to recv_pkt()
- Link to v1:

I would have put the condition inside WARN_ONCE() because I find it
more readable (e.g. WARN_ONCE(!skb_set_owner_sk_safe(skb, sk), ...),
but I don't have a strong opinion on that, so that's fine too:
