tcp: fix skb_availroom()
Chrome OS team reported a crash on a Pixel ChromeBook in TCP stack : https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=182056 commit a21d45726acac (tcp: avoid order-1 allocations on wifi and tx path) did a poor choice adding an 'avail_size' field to skb, while what we really needed was a 'reserved_tailroom' one. It would have avoided commit 22b4a4f22da (tcp: fix retransmit of partially acked frames) and this commit. Crash occurs because skb_split() is not aware of the 'avail_size' management (and should not be aware) Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com> Reported-by: Mukesh Agrawal <quiche@chromium.org> Signed-off-by: David S.
