Subject[PATCH] tcp: avoid bogus warning in tcp_clean_rtx_queue
Date
gcc-4.9 warns that it cannot trace the state of the 'last_ackt'
variable since the change to the TCP timestamping code, when
CONFIG_PROFILE_ANNOTATED_BRANCHES is set:

net/ipv4/tcp_input.c: In function 'tcp_clean_rtx_queue':
include/net/tcp.h:757:23: error: 'last_ackt' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]

Other gcc versions, both older and newer do now show this
warning. Removing the 'likely' annotation makes it go away,
and has no effect on the object code without
CONFIG_PROFILE_ANNOTATED_BRANCHES, as tested with gcc-4.9
and gcc-7.1.1, so this seems to be a safe workaround.

Fixes: 9a568de4818d ("tcp: switch TCP TS option (RFC 7323) to 1ms clock")
