  Rework sofree() logic to take into account a possible race with accept().
  Sockets in the listen queues have reference counts of 0, so if the
  protocol decides to disconnect the pcb and try to free the socket, this
  triggered a race with accept() wherein accept() would bump the reference
  count before sofree() had removed the socket from the listen queues,
  resulting in a panic in sofree() when it discovered it was freeing a
  referenced socket.  This might happen if a RST came in prior to accept()
  on a TCP connection.
  The fix is two-fold: to expand the coverage of the accept mutex earlier
  in sofree() to prevent accept() from grabbing the socket after the "is it
  really safe to free" tests, and to expand the logic of the "is it really
  safe to free" tests to check that the refcount is still 0 (i.e., we
  didn't race).
  RELENG_5 candidate.
