This allows overriding the global sysctl value with a per-socket one.

- return TSC_MHZ * ACCESS_ONCE(sysctl_net_ll_poll) + get_cycles();
+ return TSC_MHZ * ACCESS_ONCE(sk->sk_ll_usec) + get_cycles();

Hmm, sk_ll_usec is an unsigned int.

We changed it to an unsigned long in v7, I guess that was gratuitous.
Re-reading your comments on v6 2/5 I realize a cast would have sufficed.
Should I send a patch to revert it to an unsigned int?
