[PATCH] tcp: fix TCP socks unreleased in BBR mode

From: Jason Xing <kerneljasonxing@xxxxxxxxx>

TCP socks cannot be released because of the sock_hold() increasing the
sk_refcnt in the manner of tcp_internal_pacing() when RTO happens.
Therefore, this situation could increase the slab memory and then trigger
the OOM if the machine has beening running for a long time. This issue,
however, can happen on some machine only running a few days.

We add one exception case to avoid unneeded use of sock_hold if the
pacing_timer is enqueued.

Reproduce procedure:
0) cat /proc/slabinfo | grep TCP
1) switch net.ipv4.tcp_congestion_control to bbr
2) using wrk tool something like that to send packages
3) using tc to increase the delay in the dev to simulate the busy case.
4) cat /proc/slabinfo | grep TCP
5) kill the wrk command and observe the number of objects and slabs in TCP.
6) at last, you could notice that the number would not decrease.
