tcp: purge write queue in tcp_connect_init()

[ Upstream commit 7f582b248d0a86bae5788c548d7bb5bca6f7691a ]

syzkaller found a reliable way to crash the host, hitting a BUG()
in __tcp_retransmit_skb()

Malicous MSG_FASTOPEN is the root cause. We need to purge write queue
in tcp_connect_init() at the point we init snd_una/write_seq.

This patch also replaces the BUG() by a less intrusive WARN_ON_ONCE()
