Subject[patch 17/47] sctp: Correctly start rtx timer on new packet transmissions.
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Vlad Yasevich <vladislav.yasevich@hp.com>

[ Upstream commit 6574df9a89f9f7da3a4e5cee7633d430319d3350 ]

Commit 62aeaff5ccd96462b7077046357a6d7886175a57
(sctp: Start T3-RTX timer when fast retransmitting lowest TSN)
introduced a regression where it was possible to forcibly
restart the sctp retransmit timer at the transmission of any
new chunk. This resulted in much longer timeout times and
sometimes hung sctp connections.
