x/net: add Deadline, ReadBuffer, ReadDeadline, WriteBuffer, WriteDeadline getters #13196

Currently there are the following setter functions in the net package for the IPConn, TCPConn, UDPConn, and UnixConn objects:

SetDeadline(t time.Time) error
SetReadBuffer(bytes int) error
SetReadDeadline(t time.Time) error
SetWriteBuffer(bytes int) error
SetWriteDeadline(t time.Time) error

Under the covers, these all call the unix C setsockopt() function

Since setsockopt has a corresponding getsockopt function, I'm proposing that we add the corresponding Getter functions to the net package, looking something like this:

GetDeadline() (time.Time, error)
GetReadBuffer() (int, error)
GetReadDeadline() (time.Time, error)
GetWriteBuffer() (int, error)
GetWriteDeadline() (time.Time, error)

This shouldn't be too difficult to implement, since the generated zsyscall_*.go files already have the getsockopt function.

This could be useful for debugging and logging information, and for checking if the corresponding Set function needs to be called.

Is there any way we could implement these in instead?

@ianlancetaylor Yes, fine with me

I don't think these are generally useful enough to be worth the complexity they would add to the API. "shouldn't be too difficult" and "could be useful" are a very low bar, much lower than what is required for addition to the standard library. If you'd like to add them to x/net/ipv4 and x/net/ipv6, I guess that's fine.
