Subject: [PATCH][net-next] tcp: remove the now redundant non-null check on tskb

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@...onical.com>

The non-null check on tskb is redundant as it is in an else
section of a check on tskb where tskb is always null. Remove
the redundant if statement and the label coalesce.

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1457751 ("Logically dead code")

Fixes: 75c119afe14f ("tcp: implement rb-tree based retransmit queue")
