Please report the output of " grep skb /proc/slabinfo"

before and after your test.

The symptoms (of retransmit being not attempted by TCP) match the fact
that skb(s) is(are) not freed by a driver (or some layer)

When TCP detects this (function skb_still_in_host_queue()), one SNMP
counter is incremented

nstat -a | grep TCPSpuriousRtxHostQueues

Thanks.
