Subject: [PATCH] tcp: don't use timestamp from repaired skb-s to calculate RTT

We don't know right timestamp for repaired skb-s. Wrong RTT estimations
isn't good, because some congestion modules heavily depends on it.

This patch adds the TCPCB_REPAIRED flag, which is included in
TCPCB_RETRANS.

Thanks to Eric for the advice how to fix this issue.

This patch fixes the warning:
