/*
 * TCP CUBIC: Binary Increase Congestion control for TCP v2.3
 * Home page:
 *      http://netsrv.csc.ncsu.edu/twiki/bin/view/Main/BIC
 * This is from the implementation of CUBIC TCP in
 * Sangtae Ha, Injong Rhee and Lisong Xu,
 *  "CUBIC: A New TCP-Friendly High-Speed TCP Variant"
 *  in ACM SIGOPS Operating System Review, July 2008.
 * Available from:
 *  http://netsrv.csc.ncsu.edu/export/cubic_a_new_tcp_2008.pdf
 *
 * CUBIC integrates a new slow start algorithm, called HyStart.
 * The details of HyStart are presented in
 *  Sangtae Ha and Injong Rhee,
 *  "Taming the Elephants: New TCP Slow Start", NCSU TechReport 2008.
 * Available from:
 *  http://netsrv.csc.ncsu.edu/export/hystart_techreport_2008.pdf
 *
 * All testing results are available from:
 * http://netsrv.csc.ncsu.edu/wiki/index.php/TCP_Testing
 *
 * Unless CUBIC is enabled and congestion window is large
 * this behaves the same as the original Reno.
