[TCP]: reno sacked_out count fix
From: "Angelo P. Castellani" <angelo.castellani+lkml@gmail.com> Using NewReno, if a sk_buff is timed out and is accounted as lost_out, it should also be removed from the sacked_out. This is necessary because recovery using NewReno fast retransmit could take up to a lot RTTs and the sk_buff RTO can expire without actually being really lost. left_out = sacked_out + lost_out in_flight = packets_out - left_out + retrans_out Using NewReno without this patch, on very large network losses, left_out becames bigger than packets_out + retrans_out (!!). For this reason unsigned integer in_flight overflows to 2^32 - something. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
