Subject[PATCH] tcp: fix marked lost packets not being retransmitted
Date
When the packet pointed to by retransmit_skb_hint is unlinked by ACK,
retransmit_skb_hint will be set to NULL in tcp_clean_rtx_queue().
If packet loss is detected at this time, retransmit_skb_hint will be set
to point to the current packet loss in tcp_verify_retransmit_hint(),
then the packets that were previously marked lost but not retransmitted
due to the restriction of cwnd will be skipped and cannot be
retransmitted.

To fix this, when retransmit_skb_hint is NULL, retransmit_skb_hint can
be reset only after all marked lost packets are retransmitted
(retrans_out >= lost_out), otherwise we need to traverse from
tcp_rtx_queue_head in tcp_xmit_retransmit_queue().

Packetdrill to demonstrate:

// Disable RACK and set max_reordering to keep things simple
0 `sysctl -q net.ipv4.tcp_recovery=0`
+0 `sysctl -q net.ipv4.tcp_max_reordering=3`

// Establish a connection
+0 socket(..., SOCK_STREAM, IPPROTO_TCP) = 3
+0 setsockopt(3, SOL_SOCKET, SO_REUSEADDR, [1], 4) = 0
+0 bind(3, ..., ...) = 0
+0 listen(3, 1) = 0

+.1 < S 0:0(0) win 32792 <mss 1000,sackOK,nop,nop,nop,wscale 7>
+0 > S. 0:0(0) ack 1 <...>
+.01 < . 1:1(0) ack 1 win 257
+0 accept(3, ..., ...) = 4

// Send 8 data segments
+0 write(4, ..., 8000) = 8000
+0 > P. 1:8001(8000) ack 1

// Enter recovery and 1:3001 is marked lost
+.01 < . 1:1(0) ack 1 win 257 <sack 3001:4001,nop,nop>
+0 < . 1:1(0) ack 1 win 257 <sack 5001:6001 3001:4001,nop,nop>
+0 < . 1:1(0) ack 1 win 257 <sack 5001:7001 3001:4001,nop,nop>

// Retransmit 1:1001, now retransmit_skb_hint points to 1001:2001
+0 > . 1:1001(1000) ack 1

// 1001:2001 was ACKed causing retransmit_skb_hint to be set to NULL
+.01 < . 1:1(0) ack 2001 win 257 <sack 5001:8001 3001:4001,nop,nop>
// Now retransmit_skb_hint points to 4001:5001 which is now marked lost

// BUG: 2001:3001 was not retransmitted
+0 > . 2001:3001(1000) ack 1
