Subject[PATCH] tcp: Do not reset the icsk_ca_initialized in tcp_init_transfer.
icsk_ca_initialized be always set to zero before we examine it in if
block, this makes the congestion control module's initialization be
called even if the CC module was initialized already.
In case the CC module allocates and setups its dynamically allocated
private data in its init() function, e.g, CDG, the memory leak may occur.
