tcp: update skb->skb_mstamp more carefully

liujian reported a problem in TCP_USER_TIMEOUT processing with a patch
in tcp_probe_timer() :
      https://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg454496.html

After investigations, the root cause of the problem is that we update
skb->skb_mstamp of skbs in write queue, even if the attempt to send a
clone or copy of it failed. One reason being a routing problem.

This patch prevents this, solving liujian issue.

It also removes a potential RTT miscalculation, since
__tcp_retransmit_skb() is not OR-ing TCP_SKB_CB(skb)->sacked with
TCPCB_EVER_RETRANS if a failure happens, but skb->skb_mstamp has
been changed.

A future ACK would then lead to a very small RTT sample and min_rtt
would then be lowered to this too small value.

Tested:

# cat user_timeout.pkt
--local_ip=192.168.102.64

    0 socket(..., SOCK_STREAM, IPPROTO_TCP) = 3
   +0 setsockopt(3, SOL_SOCKET, SO_REUSEADDR, [1], 4) = 0
   +0 bind(3, ..., ...) = 0
   +0 listen(3, 1) = 0

   +0 `ifconfig tun0 192.168.102.64/16; ip ro add 192.0.2.1 dev tun0`

   +0 < S 0:0(0) win 0 <mss 1460>
   +0 > S. 0:0(0) ack 1 <mss 1460>

  +.1 < . 1:1(0) ack 1 win 65530
   +0 accept(3, ..., ...) = 4

   +0 setsockopt(4, SOL_TCP, TCP_USER_TIMEOUT, [3000], 4) = 0
   +0 write(4, ..., 24) = 24
   +0 > P. 1:25(24) ack 1 win 29200
   +.1 < . 1:1(0) ack 25 win 65530

//change the ipaddress
   +1 `ifconfig tun0 192.168.0.10/16`

   +1 write(4, ..., 24) = 24
   +1 write(4, ..., 24) = 24
   +1 write(4, ..., 24) = 24
   +1 write(4, ..., 24) = 24

   +0 `ifconfig tun0 192.168.102.64/16`
   +0 < . 1:2(1) ack 25 win 65530
   +0 `ifconfig tun0 192.168.0.10/16`

   +3 write(4, ..., 24) = -1
