Subject: [RFC][PATCH 1/2] TCP: fix lost retransmit detection

This patch allows to detect loss of retransmitted packets more
accurately by using the highest end sequence number among SACK 
blocks.  Before the retransmission queue is scanned, the highest
end sequence number (high_end_seq) is retrieved, and this value
is compared with the ack_seq of each packet.
