tcp/dccp: fix timewait races in timer handling
When creating a timewait socket, we need to arm the timer before allowing other cpus to find it. The signal allowing cpus to find the socket is setting tw_refcnt to non zero value. As we set tw_refcnt in __inet_twsk_hashdance(), we therefore need to call inet_twsk_schedule() first. This also means we need to remove tw_refcnt changes from inet_twsk_schedule() and let the caller handle it. Note that because we use mod_timer_pinned(), we have the guarantee the timer wont expire before we set tw_refcnt as we run in BH context. To make things more readable I introduced inet_twsk_reschedule() helper. When rearming the timer, we can use mod_timer_pending() to make sure we do not rearm a canceled timer. Note: This bug can possibly trigger if packets of a flow can hit multiple cpus. This does not normally happen, unless flow steering is broken somehow. This explains this bug was spotted ~5 months after its introduction. A similar fix is needed for SYN_RECV sockets in reqsk_queue_hash_req(), but will be provided in a separate patch for proper tracking.
