Subject: [PATCH net v2 1/1] net/udp_gso: Allow TX timestamp with UDP GSO

Fixes an issue where TX Timestamps are not arriving on the error queue
when UDP_SEGMENT CMSG type is combined with CMSG type SO_TIMESTAMPING.
This can be illustrated with an updated updgso_bench_tx program which
includes the '-T' option to test for this condition.

    ./udpgso_bench_tx -4ucTPv -S 1472 -l2 -D
    poll timeout
    udp tx:      0 MB/s        1 calls/s      1 msg/s

The "poll timeout" message above indicates that TX timestamp never

It also appears that other TX CMSG types cause similar issues, for
example trying to set SOL_IP/IP_TOS.

    ./udpgso_bench_tx -4ucPv -S 1472 -q 182 -l2 -D
    poll timeout
    udp tx:      0 MB/s        1 calls/s      1 msg/s

This patch preserves tx_flags for the first UDP GSO segment. This
mirrors the stack's behaviour for IPv4 fragments.
