net: TCP thin dupack
This patch enables fast retransmissions after one dupACK for TCP if the stream is identified as thin. This will reduce latencies for thin streams that are not able to trigger fast retransmissions due to high packet interarrival time. This mechanism is only active if enabled by iocontrol or syscontrol and the stream is identified as thin. Signed-off-by: Andreas Petlund <apetlund@simula.no> Signed-off-by: David S.
