Subject: Re: [PATCH/RFC] [v2] TCP: use non-delayed ACK for congestion	control
 RTT


The last attempt didn't take account of the situation where a timestamp
wasn't available and tcp_clean_rtx_queue() has to feed both the RTO and the
congestion avoidance.  This updated patch stores both RTTs, making the
delayed one available for the RTO and the other (ca_seq_rtt) available for
congestion control.
