Subject: [PATCH 4.19 303/321] tcp: exit if nothing to retransmit on RTO timeout

From: Yuchung Cheng <ycheng@...gle.com>

commit 88f8598d0a302a08380eadefd09b9f5cb1c4c428 upstream.

Previously TCP only warns if its RTO timer fires and the
retransmission queue is empty, but it'll cause null pointer
reference later on. It's better to avoid such catastrophic failure
and simply exit with a warning.
