Cleanups are able to reference storage allocated from the pool, since
the storage isn't released until after the last cleanup has been run.
So the IP/socket information is still available.

I don't know what the rules are for what you can do in a cleanup.  I
don't think you'd want to do anything that would cause another cleanup
to be registered.  Other than that, I dunno.
