Subject[ 61/66] tcp: fix for zero packets_in_flight was too broad
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Ilpo Järvinen <ilpo.jarvinen@helsinki.fi>

[ Upstream commit 6731d2095bd4aef18027c72ef845ab1087c3ba63 ]

There are transients during normal FRTO procedure during which
the packets_in_flight can go to zero between write_queue state
updates and firing the resulting segments out. As FRTO processing
occurs during that window the check must be more precise to
not match "spuriously" :-). More specificly, e.g., when
packets_in_flight is zero but FLAG_DATA_ACKED is true the problematic
branch that set cwnd into zero would not be taken and new segments
might be sent out later.
