RACK skips an ACK unless it advances the most recently delivered
TX timestamp (rack.mstamp). Since RACK also uses the most recent
RTT to decide if a packet is lost, RACK should still run the
loss detection whenever the most recent RTT changes. For example,
an ACK that does not advance the timestamp but triggers the cwnd
undo due to reordering, would then use the most recent (higher)
RTT measurement to detect further losses.
