Subject: ocfs2/o2net: o2net_listen_data_ready should do nothing if socket state is not TCP_LISTEN

Orabug: 17330860

When accepting an incomming connection o2net_accept_one clones a child
data socket from the parent listening socket.  It then proceeds to setup
the child with callback o2net_data_ready() and sk_user_data to NULL.  If
data arrives in this window, o2net_listen_data_ready will be called with
some non-deterministic value in sk_user_data (not inherited).  We panic
when we page fault on sk_user_data -- in parent it is sock_def_readable().
 The fix is to recognize that this is a data socket being set up by
looking at the socket state and do nothing.
