Kernel panic - not syncing: panic_on_warn set ...

This happens after commit 5e9eeccc58f3 ("tipc: fix NULL pointer
dereference in streaming") that tried to build at least one buffer even
when the message data length is zero... However, it now exposes another
bug that the 'mss' can be zero and the 'cpy' will be negative, thus the
above kernel WARNING will appear!
The zero value of 'mss' is never expected because it means Nagle is not
enabled for the socket (actually the socket type was 'SOCK_SEQPACKET'),
so the function 'tipc_msg_append()' must not be called at all. But that
was in this particular case since the message data length was zero, and
the 'send <= maxnagle' check became true.

We resolve the issue by explicitly checking if Nagle is enabled for the
socket, i.e. 'maxnagle != 0' before calling the 'tipc_msg_append()'. We
also reinforce the function to against such a negative values if any.
