  -----------
  Server sends a PING-only packet if it's limited

If a server is limited by the amplification factor when the PTO expires, send a PING-only packet instead of sending nothing.

This also removes the client complexity of continuing to arm the PTO and send even when there's nothing in flight and nothing to send.
