Fix mempool packages #6715

sdaftuar commented Sep 23, 2015

This fixes an edge case (introduced by #6654 and reported by @sipa here: #6654 (comment)) in removing an entry from the mempool during the middle of a reorg, where the entry has an in-block ancestor which has not yet had its descendant state updated for the transaction being removed.

The first commit updates the rpc-test to include a test that demonstrates the bug; the second commit provides a fix.

@sdaftuar sdaftuar force-pushed the sdaftuar:fix-mempool-packages branch Sep 23, 2015
CalculateMemPoolAncestors was always looping over a transaction's inputs
to find in-mempool parents.  When adding a new transaction, this is the
correct behavior, but when removing a transaction, we want to use the
ancestor set that would be calculated by walking mapLinks (which should
in general be the same set, except during a reorg when the mempool is
in an inconsistent state, and the mapLinks-based calculation would be the
correct one).
