rxrpc: Fix lockup due to no error backoff after ack transmit error
If the network becomes (partially) unavailable, say by disabling IPv6, the background ACK transmission routine can get itself into a tizzy by proposing immediate ACK retransmission. Since we're in the call event processor, that happens immediately without returning to the workqueue manager. The condition should clear after a while when either the network comes back or the call times out. Fix this by: (1) When re-proposing an ACK on failed Tx, don't schedule it immediately. This will allow a certain amount of time to elapse before we try again. (2) Enforce a return to the workqueue manager after a certain number of iterations of the call processing loop. (3) Add a backoff delay that increases the delay on deferred ACKs by a jiffy per failed transmission to a limit of HZ. The backoff delay is cleared on a successful return from kernel_sendmsg(). (4) Cancel calls immediately if the opening sendmsg fails. The layer above can arrange retransmission or rotate to another server.
