tcp: grow window for OOO packets only for SACK flows
Back in 2013, we made a change that broke fast retransmit for non SACK flows. Indeed, for these flows, a sender needs to receive three duplicate ACK before starting fast retransmit. Sending ACK with different receive window do not count. Even if enabling SACK is strongly recommended these days, there still are some cases where it has to be disabled. Not increasing the window seems better than having to rely on RTO. After the fix, following packetdrill test gives : // Initialize connection 0 socket(..., SOCK_STREAM, IPPROTO_TCP) = 3 +0 setsockopt(3, SOL_SOCKET, SO_REUSEADDR, [1], 4) = 0 +0 bind(3, ..., ...) = 0 +0 listen(3, 1) = 0 +0 < S 0:0(0) win 32792 <mss 1000,nop,wscale 7> +0 > S. 0:0(0) ack 1 <mss 1460,nop,wscale 8> +0 < . 1:1(0) ack 1 win 514 +0 accept(3, ..., ...) = 4 +0 < . 1:1001(1000) ack 1 win 514 // Quick ack +0 > . 1:1(0) ack 1001 win 264 +0 < . 2001:3001(1000) ack 1 win 514 // DUPACK : Normally we should not change the window +0 > . 1:1(0) ack 1001 win 264 +0 < . 3001:4001(1000) ack 1 win 514 // DUPACK : Normally we should not change the window +0 > . 1:1(0) ack 1001 win 264 +0 < . 4001:5001(1000) ack 1 win 514 // DUPACK : Normally we should not change the window +0 > . 1:1(0) ack 1001 win 264 +0 < . 1001:2001(1000) ack 1 win 514 // Hole is repaired. +0 > . 1:1(0) ack 5001 win 272 Fixes: 4e4f1fc22681 ("tcp: properly increase rcv_ssthresh for ofo packets") Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com> Reported-by: Venkat Venkatsubra <venkat.x.venkatsubra@oracle.com> Acked-by: Neal Cardwell <ncardwell@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
