This patch consolidates and simplifes the loss marking logic used
by a few loss detections (RACK, RFC6675, NewReno). Previously
each detection uses a subset of several intertwined subroutines.
This unncessary complexity has led to bugs (and fixes of bug fixes).

tcp_mark_skb_lost now is the single one routine to mark a packet loss
when a loss detection caller deems an skb ist lost:

   1. rewind tp->retransmit_hint_skb if skb has lower sequence or
      all lost ones have been retransmitted.

   2. book-keeping: adjust flags and counts depending on if skb was
      retransmitted or not.
