    rx: Don't limit the # of packets sent in recovery
    The RX transmit engine limits the number of packets sent whilst in
    loss recovery to one per invocation of the transmit engine. As the
    engine cannot be called by the application thread whilst in recovery,
    this means that we end up being limited to one packet per ACK received,
    which means that despite a growing congestion window we'll only send
    one packet per RTT (in effect, a congenstion window of 1).
    This will remain the case until we exit recovery, and all of a sudden
    can send a large number of packets. If this is larger than the current
    capacity of the network, we'll probably end straight back in recovery
    Let the congestion window do its job, by removing this arbitrary limit.
