...Please try the patch below. Andrew, this probably fixes your problem
(the packets <= tp->packets_out) as well.

Dave, please include this one to net-2.6.25.

[PATCH] [TCP]: Fix fack_count miscountings (multiple places)

1) Fack_count is set incorrectly if the highest sent skb is
already sacked (the skb->prev won't return it because it's on
the other list already). These manifest as fackets_out counting
error later on, the second-order effects are very hard to track,
so it may fix all out-standing TCP bug reports.

2) Prev == NULL check was wrong way around

3) Last skb's fack count was incorrectly skipped while() {} loop
