net: use indirect call wrappers for skb_copy_datagram_iter()

TCP recvmsg() calls skb_copy_datagram_iter(), which
calls an indirect function (cb pointing to simple_copy_to_iter())
for every MSS (fragment) present in the skb.

CONFIG_RETPOLINE=y forces a very expensive operation
that we can avoid thanks to indirect call wrappers.

This patch gives a 13% increase of performance on
a single flow, if the bottleneck is the thread reading
the TCP socket.
