Yes, there is a copy_from_user in the sock_setbindtodevice for copying
the ioctl netdev name from the user which (I think) not necessary
here. However sock_setbindtodevice_locked is the way to go but I was
afraid to forward declare it in sock.h, change the linkage and export
it in sock.c (I find that a little bit too intrusive).

Thanks for the advice. However I think I'll wait what happens with
this patch: https://lore.kernel.org/netdev/20200520195509.2215098-8-hch@lst.de/T/#u
Very strange coincidence that patch was submitted a few hours before
mine (but I noticed just now) and refactor the sock_setbindtodevice in
a way that will useful in my case (also define it in sock.h).

Thanks, I will implement them in the next iteration.
