   2 * Binary Increase Congestion control for TCP
   3 * Home page:
   4 *      http://netsrv.csc.ncsu.edu/twiki/bin/view/Main/BIC
   5 * This is from the implementation of BICTCP in
   6 * Lison-Xu, Kahaled Harfoush, and Injong Rhee.
   7 *  "Binary Increase Congestion Control for Fast, Long Distance
   8 *  Networks" in InfoComm 2004
   9 * Available from:
  10 *  http://netsrv.csc.ncsu.edu/export/bitcp.pdf
  11 *
  12 * Unless BIC is enabled and congestion window is large
  13 * this behaves the same as the original Reno.
