The problem here is the skb we provide to tcp_v4_send_ack() had to
be parked in the backlog of a new TCP fastopen child because this child
was owned by the user at the time an out of window packet arrived.

Before queuing a packet, TCP has to set skb->dev to NULL as the device
could disappear before packet is removed from the queue.

Fix this issue by using the net pointer provided by the socket (being a
timewait or a request socket).

IPv6 is immune to the bug : tcp_v6_send_response() already gets the net
pointer from the socket if provided.
