 The timer duration, or Probe Timeout (PTO), is set based on the following
-* PTO SHOULD be scheduled for max(1.5*SRTT+MaxAckDelay, kMinTLPTimeout)
+* If less than 2400 bytes are in flight, PTO SHOULD be scheduled for

So, is the receiver acknowledging based on byte count or packet count? I thought it was packet count. If so, then it seems to reason, the sender should do the same here.
