Backport of ms commit d5afb6f9b6bb

The code where sk_clone() came from created a new socket and locked it,
but then, on the error path didn't unlock it.

This problem stayed there for a long while, till b0691c8ee7c2 ("net:
Unlock sock before calling sk_free()") fixed it, but unfortunately the
callers of sk_clone() (now sk_clone_locked()) were not audited and the
one in dccp_create_openreq_child() remained.

Now in the age of the syskaller fuzzer, this was finally uncovered, as
reported by Dmitry:

I've got the following report while running syzkaller fuzzer on
