Subject: [PATCH net] tcp: refactor tcp_retransmit_timer()

It appears linux-4.14 stable needs a backport of commit
88f8598d0a30 ("tcp: exit if nothing to retransmit on RTO timeout")

Since tcp_rtx_queue_empty() is not in pre 4.15 kernels,
let's refactor tcp_retransmit_timer() to only use tcp_rtx_queue_head()

I will provide to stable teams the squashed patches.
