One question below for get_proc_task_net() -- I don't see how the
reference to a task struct is released.

This implies a get_task_struct(), as get_proc_task() invokes get_proc_task()
which invokes get_pid_task() which invokes get_task_struct().

I don't see the corresponding put_task_struct() -- what am I missing here?
