can: isotp: isotp_sendmsg(): fix return error on FC timeout on TX path

When the a large chunk of data send and the receiver does not send a
Flow Control frame back in time, the sendmsg() does not return a error
code, but the number of bytes sent corresponding to the size of the

If a timeout occurs the isotp_tx_timer_handler() is fired, sets
sk->sk_err and calls the sk->sk_error_report() function. It was
wrongly expected that the error would be propagated to user space in
every case. For isotp_sendmsg() blocking on wait_event_interruptible()
this is not the case.

This patch fixes the problem by checking if sk->sk_err is set and
returning the error to user space.
