Keep track of recently rejected transactions with a rolling bloom filter (cont'd) #6498

merged 6 commits into from Aug 3, 2015

Peter Todd is on holiday, so continued from #6452
Added a commit that moves recentRejects initialization to the top of InitBlockIndex to avoid not initializing it under some conditions.

While CBloomFilter is usually used with an explicitly set nTweak,
CRollingBloomFilter is only used internally. Requiring every caller to
set nTweak is error-prone and redundant; better to have the class handle
that for you with a high-quality randomness source.

Additionally when clearing the filter it makes sense to change nTweak as
well to recover from a bad setting, e.g. due to insufficient randomness
at initialization, so the clear() method is replaced by a reset() method
that sets a new, random, nTweak value.
Nodes can have divergent policies on which transactions they will accept
and relay.  This can cause you to repeatedly request and reject the same
tx after its inved to you from various peers which have accepted it.
Here we add rolling bloom filter to keep track of such rejections,
clearing the filter every time the chain tip changes.

Credit goes to Alex Morcos, who created the patch that this code is
based on.

Original code by Peter Todd. Refactored to not construct the
filter at startup time by Pieter Wuille.
This avoids that premature return in the condition that a new chain is initialized
results in NULL pointer errors due to recentReject not being constructed.

Also add assertions where it is used.
