The hell it will.

touch a
touch b
exec 5<a
mv b a
ls -l /proc/$$/fd/5

With your patch and without it, please.

PS: getting rid of socket dentries is a bad idea with the capital "Fuck, No".
For those who want to see where does that path lead and are attracted to

paid quite painfully for lack of proper vnodes.  It's simply not worth
the resulting trouble.
