parent[TCP] FRTO: Ignore some uninteresting ACKs (diff)
[TCP] FRTO: fixes fallback to conventional recovery
The FRTO detection did not care how ACK pattern affects to cwnd calculation of the conventional recovery. This caused incorrect setting of cwnd when the fallback becames necessary. The knowledge tcp_process_frto() has about the incoming ACK is now passed on to tcp_enter_frto_loss() in allowed_segments parameter that gives the number of segments that must be added to packets-in-flight while calculating the new cwnd. Instead of snd_una we use FLAG_DATA_ACKED in duplicate ACK detection because RFC4138 states (in Section 2.2): If the first acknowledgment after the RTO retransmission does not acknowledge all of the data that was retransmitted in step 1, the TCP sender reverts to the conventional RTO recovery. Otherwise, a malicious receiver acknowledging partial segments could cause the sender to declare the timeout spurious in a case where data was lost. If the next ACK after RTO is duplicate, we do not retransmit anything, which is equal to what conservative conventional recovery does in such case.
