dccp ccid-3: remove buggy RTT-sampling history lookup
This removes the RTT-sampling function tfrc_tx_hist_rtt(), since 1. it suffered from complex passing of return values (the return value both indicated successful lookup while the value doubled as RTT sample); 2. when for some odd reason the sample value equalled 0, this triggered a bug warning about "bogus Ack", due to the ambiguity of the return value; 3. on a passive host which has not sent anything the TX history is empty and thus will lead to unwanted "bogus Ack" warnings such as ccid3_hc_tx_packet_recv: server(e7b7d518): DATAACK with bogus ACK-28197148 ccid3_hc_tx_packet_recv: server(e7b7d518): DATAACK with bogus ACK-26641606. The fix is to replace the implicit encoding by performing the steps manually. Furthermore, the "bogus Ack" warning has been removed, since it can actually be triggered due to several reasons (network reordering, old packet, (3) above), hence it is not very useful.
