net: unix: fix inflight counting bug in garbage collector
Previously I assumed that the receive queues of candidates don't change during the GC. This is only half true, nothing can be received from the queues (see comment in unix_gc()), but buffers could be added through the other half of the socket pair, which may still have file descriptors referring to it. This can result in inc_inflight_move_tail() erronously increasing the "inflight" counter for a unix socket for which dec_inflight() wasn't previously called. This in turn can trigger the "BUG_ON(total_refs < inflight_refs)" in a later garbage collection run. Fix this by only manipulating the "inflight" counter for sockets which are candidates themselves. Duplicating the file references in unix_attach_fds() is also needed to prevent a socket becoming a candidate for GC while the skb that contains it is not yet queued.
