This function references sk->sk_prot->xxx for many times.
It turned out, that there's so many code in it, that gcc 
cannot always optimize access to sk->sk_prot's fields.

After saving the sk->sk_prot on the stack and comparing
disassembled code, it turned out that the function became
~10 bytes shorter and made less dereferences (on i386 and 
x86_64). Stack consumption didn't grow.

Besides, this patch drives most of this function into the
80 columns limit.

Such experiments are always useful, but I doubt there will
be substantial gains in this case.

I've applied the patch, thanks Pavel.

I wonder if making it 'const struct proto *prot = sk->sk_prot;'

would make any difference.
