dctcp: avoid bogus doubling of cwnd after loss

If a congestion control module doesn't provide .undo_cwnd function,
tcp_undo_cwnd_reduction() will set cwnd to

   tp->snd_cwnd = max(tp->snd_cwnd, tp->snd_ssthresh << 1);

... which makes sense for reno (it sets ssthresh to half the current cwnd),
but it makes no sense for dctcp, which sets ssthresh based on the current
congestion estimate.

This can cause severe growth of cwnd (eventually overflowing u32).

Fix this by saving last cwnd on loss and restore cwnd based on that,
similar to cubic and other algorithms.
