tcp_write_queue_purge clears all the SKBs in the write queue

but does not reset the sk_send_head. As a result, we can have
a NULL pointer dereference anywhere that we use tcp_send_head
instead of the tcp_write_queue_tail.

For example, after 27fid7a8ed38 (tcp: purge write queue upon RST),
we can purge the write queue on RST. Prior to
75c119a (tcp: implement rb-tree based retransmit queue),
tcp_push will only check tcp_send_head and then accesses
tcp_write_queue_tail to send the actual SKB. As a result, it will
dereference a NULL pointer.

This has been reported twice for 4.14 where we don't have
75c119a:
