atm: Preserve value of skb->truesize when accounting to vcc

ATM accounts for in-flight TX packets in sk_wmem_alloc of the VCC on
which they are to be sent. But it doesn't take ownership of those
packets from the sock (if any) which originally owned them. They should
remain owned by their actual sender until they've left the box.

There's a hack in pskb_expand_head() to avoid adjusting skb->truesize
for certain skbs, precisely to avoid messing up sk_wmem_alloc
accounting. Ideally that hack would cover the ATM use case too, but it
doesn't — skbs which aren't owned by any sock, for example PPP control
frames, still get their truesize adjusted when the low-level ATM driver
adds headroom.

This has always been an issue, it seems. The truesize of a packet
increases, and sk_wmem_alloc on the VCC goes negative. But this wasn't
for normal traffic, only for control frames. So I think we just got away
with it, and we probably needed to send 2GiB of LCP echo frames before
the misaccounting would ever have caused a problem and caused
atm_may_send() to start refusing packets.

Commit 14afee4b ("net: convert sock.sk_wmem_alloc from atomic_t to
refcount_t") did exactly what it was intended to do, and turned this
mostly-theoretical problem into a real one, causing PPPoATM to fail
immediately as sk_wmem_alloc underflows and atm_may_send() *immediately*
starts refusing to allow new packets.

The least intrusive solution to this problem is to stash the value of
skb->truesize that was accounted to the VCC, in a new member of the
ATM_SKB(skb) structure. Then in atm_pop_raw() subtract precisely that
value instead of the then-current value of skb->truesize.
