sctp: Start T3-RTX timer when fast retransmitting lowest TSN
Vlad Yasevich [Wed, 4 Jun 2008 19:39:11 +0000 (12:39 -0700)]
When we are trying to fast retransmit the lowest outstanding TSN, we
need to restart the T3-RTX timer, so that subsequent timeouts will
correctly tag all the packets necessary for retransmissions.
