Thank you for your time and suggestions!
I will change the target tree to net and add a Fixes: tag.

I think moving skb_recv_datagram() before lock_sock() is ok, because it does not
hold lock_sock() and will not influence other operations. The applications would not
break. What`s more, it is safe to move skb_recv_datagram() before lock_sock().

The check "if (sk->sk_type == SOCK_SEQPACKET && sk->sk_state != TCP_ESTABLISHED)"
have to be protected by lock_sock(), because sk->sk_state may be changed by
ax25_disconnect() in ax25_kill_by_device().

Best regards,
