Please try the following fix.

Thanks !

[PATCH] tcp: tcp_slow_start() should not decrease snd_cwnd

Cristian Rodríguez reported various lockups in TCP stack,
introduced by commit 9dc274151a548 (tcp: fix ABC in tcp_slow_start())

We could exit tcp_slow_start() with a zeroed snd_cwnd,
and next time we enter tcp_slow_start(), we run an infinite loop.
