Summary

While testing with system default cc set to cubic, and
running a memory exhaustion validation, FreeBSD panics for a
missing inpcb reference / lock.

Test Plan

Modify modular CC, to return ENOMEM during the _cb_init() function;
load modified CC, and temporarily switch to it as default CC.
Validate that a new session fails with "socket: No buffer space available", instead of a kernel panic (kassert).
Unset the modified CC as default algorithm.
