Moving it here will be after the check against ctsn_ack_point, which
could cause duplicated SACKs to be missed from the log.

Yes, from the sender-side CC we don't care about it (yet), but it
helps to spot probably avoidable retransmissions.

I think this is cleaning up the noise too much. I can agree with
moving it to after the chunk sanity tests, though.
