net: sk_pacing_shift_update() helper

In commit 3a9b76fd

 ("tcp: allow drivers to tweak TSQ logic")
I gave a code sample to set sk->sk_pacing_shift that was not complete.

Better add a helper that can be used by drivers without worries,
and maybe amended in the future.

A wifi driver might use it from its ndo_start_xmit()

Following call would setup TCP to allow up to ~8ms of queued data per

sk_pacing_shift_update(skb->sk, 7);
