Subject: [PATCH 3/3] Check num sacks in SACK fast path

When we check for SACK fast path make sure that we also have the same number of
SACK blocks in the cache and in the new SACK data. This prevents us from
mistakenly taking the cache data if the old data in the SACK cache is the same
as the data in the SACK block.
