    Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.13 071/189] net: tcp better handling of reordering then loss cases
    Date
    From: Yuchung Cheng <ycheng@google.com>

    [ Upstream commit a29cb6914681a55667436a9eb7a42e28da8cf387 ]

    This patch aims to improve the situation when reordering and loss are
    ocurring in the same flight of packets.

    Previously the reordering would first induce a spurious recovery, then
    the subsequent ACK may undo the cwnd (based on the timestamps e.g.).
    However the current loss recovery does not proceed to invoke
    RACK to install a reordering timer. If some packets are also lost, this
    may lead to a long RTO-based recovery. An example is
    https://groups.google.com/g/bbr-dev/c/OFHADvJbTEI

    The solution is to after reverting the recovery, always invoke RACK
    to either mount the RACK timer to fast retransmit after the reordering
    window, or restarts the recovery if new loss is identified. Hence
    it is possible the sender may go from Recovery to Disorder/Open to
    Recovery again in one ACK.
