net: netprio_cgroup: rework update socket logic
Instead of updating the sk_cgrp_prioidx struct field on every send this only updates the field when a task is moved via cgroup infrastructure. This allows sockets that may be used by a kernel worker thread to be managed. For example in the iscsi case today a user can put iscsid in a netprio cgroup and control traffic will be sent with the correct sk_cgrp_prioidx value set but as soon as data is sent the kernel worker thread isssues a send and sk_cgrp_prioidx is updated with the kernel worker threads value which is the default case. It seems more correct to only update the field when the user explicitly sets it via control group infrastructure. This allows the users to manage sockets that may be used with other threads.
