net/sched: taprio: Check if socket flags are valid

A user may set the SO_TXTIME socket option to ensure a packet is send
at a given time. The taprio scheduler has to confirm, that it is allowed
to send a packet at that given time, by a check against the packet time
schedule. The scheduler drop the packet, if the gates are closed at the
given send time.

The check, if SO_TXTIME is set, may fail since sk_flags are part of an
union and the union is used otherwise. This happen, if a socket is not
a full socket, like a request socket for example.

Add a check to verify, if the union is used for sk_flags.
