SubjectRe: [PATCH 4.14] tcp: fix tcp_rtx_queue_tail in case of empty retransmit queue
Hi,

I also tried to reproduce this in a targeted way, and run into the
same difficulty as you: satisfying the first condition “
(sk->sk_wmem_queued >> 1) > limit “.
I will not have bandwidth the coming days to try and reproduce it in
this way. Maybe simply forcing a very small send buffer using sysctl
net.ipv4.tcp_wmem might even do the trick?

I suspect that the bug is easier to trigger with the MPTCP patch like
I did originally, due to the way this patch manages the tcp subflow
buffers (it can temporarily overfill the buffers, satisfying that
first condition more often).

another thing, the stacktrace you shared before seems caused by
another issue (corrupted socket?), it will not be solved by the patch
we submitted.

kind regards,

Tim
