    Rx: Treat rx_minPeerTimeout not as a minimum but as padding
    An improved RTT and timeout calculation algorithm is being
    developed but until we have it, treat rx_minPeerTimeout not as
    a minimum value for the timeout but as padding to be added to
    the measured RTT when computing the peer timeout value.
    With this change rx does not begin to send large numbers of
    resends when the RTT begins to exceed the rx_minPeerTimeout
    value.  Timeout triggered resends at the moment can force rx
    into fast recovery mode which in turn kills performance.  It
    is better to avoid that problem for now.
