tcp: restrict net.ipv4.tcp_adv_win_scale (#20312)

tcp_win_from_space() does the following:

      if (sysctl_tcp_adv_win_scale <= 0)
              return space >> (-sysctl_tcp_adv_win_scale);
      else
              return space - (space >> sysctl_tcp_adv_win_scale);

"space" is int.

As per C99 6.5.7 (3) shifting int for 32 or more bits is
undefined behaviour.

Indeed, if sysctl_tcp_adv_win_scale is exactly 32,
space >> 32 equals space and function returns 0.

Which means we busyloop in tcp_fixup_rcvbuf().

Restrict net.ipv4.tcp_adv_win_scale to [-31, 31].

Fix https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20312

Steps to reproduce:

      echo 32 >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_adv_win_scale
      wget www.kernel.org
