This flow won't be removed unless the tcp connection call sk_destruct or
the netdev is removed.

Thus, this lookup should *always* succeed.

This, is also why I wanted to ask Aditya if this flow was actually
encountered in practice. I'm sure that if our assumption about the
safety of this flow breaks, then other parts of the TLS driver will fail
as well.
