sock_diag: request _diag module only when the family or proto has been registered



Now when using 'ss' in iproute, kernel would try to load all _diag
modules, which also causes corresponding family and proto modules
to be loaded as well due to module dependencies.

Like after running 'ss', sctp, dccp, af_packet (if it works as a module)
would be loaded.

For example:

  $ lsmod|grep sctp
  $ ss
  $ lsmod|grep sctp
  sctp_diag              16384  0
  sctp                  323584  5 sctp_diag
  inet_diag              24576  4 raw_diag,tcp_diag,sctp_diag,udp_diag
  libcrc32c              16384  3 nf_conntrack,nf_nat,sctp

As these family and proto modules are loaded unintentionally, it
could cause some problems, like:

- Some debug tools use 'ss' to collect the socket info, which loads all
  those diag and family and protocol modules. It's noisy for identifying
  issues.

- Users usually expect to drop sctp init packet silently when they
  have no sense of sctp protocol instead of sending abort back.

- It wastes resources (especially with multiple netns), and SCTP module
  can't be unloaded once it's loaded.

...

In short, it's really inappropriate to have these family and proto
modules loaded unexpectedly when just doing debugging with inet_diag.

This patch is to introduce sock_load_diag_module() where it loads
the _diag module only when it's corresponding family or proto has
been already registered.

Note that we can't just load _diag module without the family or
proto loaded, as some symbols used in _diag module are from the
family or proto module.

v1->v2:
  - move inet proto check to inet_diag to avoid a compiling err.
v2->v3:
  - define sock_load_diag_module in sock.c and export one symbol
    only.
  - improve the changelog.
