Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 net] tcp: fix retrans timestamp on passive Fast Open

> Commit c7d13c8faa74 ("tcp: properly track retry time on
> passive Fast Open") sets the start of SYNACK retransmission
> time on passive Fast Open in "retrans_stamp". However the
> timestamp is not reset upon the handshake has completed. As a
> result, future data packet retransmission may not update it in
> tcp_retransmit_skb(). This may lead to socket aborting earlier

> the SYNACK rtx time.
> This bug only manifests on passive TFO sender that a) suffered
> SYNACK timeout and then b) stalls on very first loss recovery. Any
> successful loss recovery would reset the timestamp to avoid this
