[PATCH net 0/2] mptcp: fix 3rd ack rtx timer

Posted by Paolo Abeni 2 weeks, 2 days ago
Eric noted that the MPTCP code do the wrong thing to schedule
the MPJ 3rd ack timer. He also provided a patch to address the
issues (patch 1/2).

To fix for good the MPJ 3rd ack retransmission timer, we additionally
need to set it after the current ack is transmitted (patch 2/2)

Note that the bug went unnotice so far because all the related
tests required some running data transfer, and that causes
MPTCP-level ack even on the opening MPJ subflow. We now have
explicit packet drill coverage for this code path.
