tcp: avoid infinite loop in tcp_splice_read()
commit ccf7abb93af09ad0868ae9033d1ca8108bdaec82 upstream. Splicing from TCP socket is vulnerable when a packet with URG flag is received and stored into receive queue. __tcp_splice_read() returns 0, and sk_wait_data() immediately returns since there is the problematic skb in queue. This is a nice way to burn cpu (aka infinite loop) and trigger soft lockups. Again, this gem was found by syzkaller tool. Fixes: 9c55e01c0cc8 ("[TCP]: Splice receive support.")
