Subject: [PATCH] net: fix infinite loop in __skb_recv_datagram()

commit 77c1090f94d1b0b5186fb13a1b71b47b1343f87f upstream.

Tommi was fuzzing with trinity and reported the following problem :

commit 3f518bf745 (datagram: Add offset argument to __skb_recv_datagram)
missed that a raw socket receive queue can contain skbs with no payload.

We can loop in __skb_recv_datagram() with MSG_PEEK mode, because
wait_for_packet() is not prepared to skip these skbs.
