This looks reasonable, I think. Next time user space calls if no new
buffer space was made available it will get a -EAGAIN, right?

Two questions - is there any particular application or use case that
runs into this? Seems a bit surprising to see a patch from Vadim and
you guys come at the same time.

Could you also add test for this bug? 
In tools/testing/selftests/net/tls.c
