tcp: fix incorrect ca_state in tail loss probe
[ Upstream commit 031afe4990a7c9dbff41a3a742c44d3e740ea0a1 ] On receiving an ACK that covers the loss probe sequence, TLP immediately sets the congestion state to Open, even though some packets are not recovered and retransmisssion are on the way. The later ACks may trigger a WARN_ON check in step D of tcp_fastretrans_alert(), e.g., https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=989251 The fix is to follow the similar procedure in recovery by calling tcp_try_keep_open(). The sender switches to Open state if no packets are retransmissted. Otherwise it goes to Disorder and let subsequent ACKs move the state to Recovery or Open.
