tcp: Discard segments that ack data not yet sent

Discard incoming packets whose ack field iincludes data not yet sent.
This is consistent with RFC 793 Section 3.9.

Change tcp_ack() to distinguish between too-small and too-large ack
field values.  Keep segments with too-large ack fields out of the fast
path, and change slow path to discard them.
