New Revision: 197854

  Merge r197795 from head to stable/8:
    In tcp_input(), we acquire a global write lock at first only if a
    segment is likely to trigger a TCP state change (i.e., FIN/RST/SYN).
    If we later have to upgrade the lock, we acquire an inpcb reference
    and drop both global/inpcb locks before reacquiring in-order.  In
    that gap, the connection may transition into TIMEWAIT, so we need
    to loop back and reevaluate the inpcb after relocking.
