Subject: [PATCH net] mptcp: sendmsg: reset iter on error redux

This fix wasn't correct: When this function is invoked from the
retransmission worker, the iterator contains garbage and resetting
it causes a crash.

As the work queue should not be performance critical also zero the
msghdr struct.

 Brown paper bag patch.  I will see if having distinct functions
 for the mtcp_sendmsg and retransmit wq case is feasible/more
 appropriate.
