Socket documentation fix
The "Quick start" section of the Socket documentation refers to the Socket::INET constant, which doesn't exist. I've attached a small patch changing the reference to Socket::AFINET, which seems consistent with the rest of the documentation (the alternative would be Socket::PFINET, which has the same value).

I've discussed this with another mri committer, and we've come to the conclusion that the example should use AF_INET, as socket(2) suggests:
"The manifest constants used under 4.x BSD for protocol families are PFUNIX, PFINET, etc., while AFUNIX etc. are used for address families. However, already the BSD man page promises: "The protocol family generally is the same as the address family", and subsequent standards use AF* everywhere."
PF_INET is just an alias.
I will commit this patch if there are no obligations. Thank you for your contribution David.
