tcp: don't require root to read tcp_metrics
commit d23ff7016 (tcp: add generic netlink support for tcp_metrics) introduced netlink support for the new tcp_metrics, however it restricted getting of tcp_metrics to root user only. This is a change from how these values could have been fetched when in the old route cache. Unless there's a legitimate reason to restrict the reading of these values it would be better if normal users could fetch them.
