Subject[053/152] tcp: Dont change unlocked socket state in tcp_v4_err().
2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

[ Upstream commit 8f49c2703b33519aaaccc63f571b465b9d2b3a2d ]

Alexey Kuznetsov noticed a regression introduced by
commit f1ecd5d9e7366609d640ff4040304ea197fbc618
("Revert Backoff [v3]: Revert RTO on ICMP destination unreachable")

The RTO and timer modification code added to tcp_v4_err()
doesn't check sock_owned_by_user(), which if true means we
don't have exclusive access to the socket and therefore cannot
modify it's critical state.

Just skip this new code block if sock_owned_by_user() is true
and eliminate the now superfluous sock_owned_by_user() code
block contained within.
