Release _what_ skb?

The body of the loop is entered only if the loop condition has
evaluated true.  In this case, it means that the value of
	!(skb = skb_dequeue(&tun->queue))
had been true, i.e. the value of
	skb = skb_dequeue(&tun->queue)
has been NULL, i.e. that skb_dequeue() has returned NULL, which had
been copied into skb.

In other words, in the body of that loop we have skb equal to NULL.

The meaning of that loop is fairly clear, isn't it?  Keep looking int
tun->queue until an skb shows up there.  If it's not immediately there,
fail with -EAGAIN for non-blocking files and wait on tun->readq until
some skb arrives.
