    MFC r251984:

>   When a previous call to sbsndptr() leaves sb->sb_sndptroff at the start of an
>   mbuf that was fully consumed by the previous call, the mbuf ptr returned by the
>   current call ends up being the previous mbuf in the sb chain to the one that
>   contains the data we want.

>   walk the mbuf chain to get to the data at the moff offset, which in this case
>   means they effectively skip over the mbuf returned by sbsndptr().
>   We can't adjust sb->sb_sndptr during the previous call for this case because the
>   next mbuf in the chain may not exist yet. We therefore need to detect the
