Subject: [PATCH 4.16 27/81] tcp: clear tp->packets_out when purging write queue

4.16-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Soheil Hassas Yeganeh <soheil@...gle.com>


[ Upstream commit bffd168c3fc5cc7d2bad4c668fa90e7a9010db4b ]

Clear tp->packets_out when purging the write queue, otherwise
tcp_rearm_rto() mistakenly assumes TCP write queue is not empty.
This results in NULL pointer dereference.

Also, remove the redundant `tp->packets_out = 0` from
tcp_disconnect(), since tcp_disconnect() calls
tcp_write_queue_purge().

Fixes: a27fd7a8ed38 (tcp: purge write queue upon RST)
