net: sk_clone_lock() should only do get_net() if the parent is not a kernel socket

The newsk returned by sk_clone_lock should hold a get_net()
reference if, and only if, the parent is not a kernel socket
(making this similar to sk_alloc()).

E.g,. for the SYN_RECV path, tcp_v4_syn_recv_sock->..inet_csk_clone_lock
sets up the syn_recv newsk from sk_clone_lock. When the parent (listen)
socket is a kernel socket (defined in sk_alloc() as having
sk_net_refcnt == 0), then the newsk should also have a 0 sk_net_refcnt
and should not hold a get_net() reference.

Fixes: 26abe14379f8 ("net: Modify sk_alloc to not reference count the
      netns of kernel sockets.")
