[Ndn-interest] Resend pending interests

Hi Nitinder

NDN forwarder keeps Interests in PIT so that similar Interests (same Name
and Selectors) are suppressed.
If the upstream/producer doesn't answer, forwarding strategy can try
different paths. Typically, strategy won't forward to the same nexthop more
than once on its own.

When consumer retransmits a similar Interest (same Name and Selectors) with
a different Nonce, the forwarding strategy can decide whether to forward
this Interest again. In this situation, strategy may forward to the same
upstream/producer again.
Thus, consumer doesn't need to "rename" the Interest. It can just
retransmit with a different Nonce.

In NFD v0.3.0, best-route v2 strategy and access strategy will forward
consumer retransmitted Interest if it's more than 100ms since the previous
forwarded transmission; if the consumer retransmission is within 100ms,
it's suppressed.
The 100ms suppression interval is set arbitrarily. We are thinking about
using exponential backoff algorithm to decide whether to suppress or
forward. Other suggestions are welcomed.

Yours, Junxiao
