6.6-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

commit fb7a0d334894206ae35f023a82cad5a290fd7386 upstream.

Christoph reported a splat hinting at a corrupted snd_una:

When fallback to TCP happens early on a client socket, snd_nxt
is not yet initialized and any incoming ack will copy such value
into snd_una. If the mptcp worker (dumbly) tries mptcp-level
re-injection after such ack, that would unconditionally trigger a send
buffer cleanup using 'bad' snd_una values.

We could easily disable re-injection for fallback sockets, but such
dumb behavior already helped catching a few subtle issues and a very
low to zero impact in practice.

Instead address the issue always initializing snd_nxt (and write_seq,
for consistency) at connect time.
