Subject[26/70] tcp: avoid cwnd moderation in undo
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Yuchung Cheng <ycheng@google.com>

[ Upstream commit 67d4120a1793138bc9f4a6eb61d0fc5298ed97e0 ]

In the current undo logic, cwnd is moderated after it was restored
to the value prior entering fast-recovery. It was moderated first
in tcp_try_undo_recovery then again in tcp_complete_cwr.

Since the undo indicates recovery was false, these moderations
are not necessary. If the undo is triggered when most of the
outstanding data have been acknowledged, the (restored) cwnd is
falsely pulled down to a small value.

This patch removes these cwnd moderations if cwnd is undone
a) during fast-recovery
b) by receiving DSACKs past fast-recovery
