Subject[PATCH] tipc: Fix tipc_sk_reinit handling of -EAGAIN

In 9dbbfb0ab6680c6a85609041011484e6658e7d3c function tipc_sk_reinit
had additional logic added to loop in the event that function
rhashtable_walk_next() returned -EAGAIN. No worries.

However, if rhashtable_walk_start returns -EAGAIN, it does "continue",
and therefore skips the call to rhashtable_walk_stop(). That has
the effect of calling rcu_read_lock() without its paired call to
rcu_read_unlock(). Since rcu_read_lock() may be nested, the problem
may not be apparent for a while, especially since resize events may
be rare. But the comments to rhashtable_walk_start() state:

* ...Note that we take the RCU lock in all
* cases including when we return an error. So you must always call
* rhashtable_walk_stop to clean up.

This patch replaces the continue with a goto and label to ensure a
matching call to rhashtable_walk_stop().
