rtpjitterbuffer: Don't request rtx if 'now' is past retry period

There is no need to schedule another EXPECTED timer if we're already
past the retry period. Under normal operation this won't happen, but if
there are more timers than the jitterbuffer is able to process in
real-time, scheduling more timers will just make the situation worse.
Instead, consider this packet as lost and move on. This scenario can
occur with high loss rate, low rtt and high configured latency.
