tcp: Fix crash in TCP Fast Open
Commit 355a901e6cf1 ("tcp: make connect() mem charging friendly") changed tcp_send_syn_data() to perform an open-coded copy of the 'syn' skb rather than using skb_copy_expand(). The open-coded copy does not cover the skb_shared_info::gso_segs field, so in the new skb it is left set to 0. When this commit was backported into stable branches between 3.10.y and 3.16.7-ckty inclusive, it triggered the BUG() in tcp_transmit_skb(). Since Linux 3.18 the GSO segment count is kept in the tcp_skb_cb::tcp_gso_segs field and tcp_send_syn_data() does copy the tcp_skb_cb structure to the new skb, so mainline and newer stable branches are not affected. Set skb_shared_info::gso_segs to the correct value of 1.
