[TCP]: SACK enhanced FRTO
Implements the SACK-enhanced FRTO given in RFC4138 using the variant given in Appendix B. RFC4138, Appendix B: "This means that in order to declare timeout spurious, the TCP sender must receive an acknowledgment for non-retransmitted segment between SND.UNA and RecoveryPoint in algorithm step 3. RecoveryPoint is defined in conservative SACK-recovery algorithm [RFC3517]" The basic version of the FRTO algorithm can still be used also when SACK is enabled. To enabled SACK-enhanced version, tcp_frto sysctl is set to 2. Signed-off-by: Ilpo Järvinen <ilpo.jarvinen@helsinki.fi> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
