sctp: Properly timestamp outgoing data chunks for rtx purposes
Recent changes to the retransmit code exposed a long standing bug where it was possible for a chunk to be time stamped after the retransmit timer was reset. This caused a rare situation where the retrnamist timer has expired, but nothing was marked for retrnasmission because all of timesamps on data were less then 1 rto ago. As result, the timer was never restarted since nothing was retransmitted, and this resulted in a hung association that did couldn't complete the data transfer. The solution is to timestamp the chunk when it's added to the packet for transmission purposes. After the packet is trsnmitted the rtx timer is restarted. This guarantees that when the timer expires, there will be data to retransmit. Signed-off-by: Vlad Yasevich <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <firstname.lastname@example.org>
