You sum it up in the first sentence: with TCP you never know when the
data will be sent.  tcp_output() is not a means to know that the data
are sent - it's just a way of asking the stack to send now if it can.
There are lots of reasons why a call to tcp_output() would do nothing
and this is by design - if it was otherwise it would break the TCP

To discover when data have been successfully sent use the tcp_sent()
