Subject[PATCH 3.13 004/162] tcp: don't use timestamp from repaired skb-s to calculate RTT (v2)
Date
3.13.11.11 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Andrey Vagin <avagin@openvz.org>

[ Upstream commit 9d186cac7ffb1831e9f34cb4a3a8b22abb9dd9d4 ]

We don't know right timestamp for repaired skb-s. Wrong RTT estimations
isn't good, because some congestion modules heavily depends on it.

This patch adds the TCPCB_REPAIRED flag, which is included in
TCPCB_RETRANS.

Thanks to Eric for the advice how to fix this issue.

This patch fixes the warning:

v2: moving setting of skb->when for repaired skb-s in tcp_write_xmit,
where it's set for other skb-s.
