Subject[PATCH 4.14 071/146] tcp_bbr: reset full pipe detection on loss recovery undo
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Neal Cardwell <>

[ Upstream commit 2f6c498e4f15d27852c04ed46d804a39137ba364 ]

Fix BBR so that upon notification of a loss recovery undo BBR resets
the full pipe detection (STARTUP exit) state machine.

Under high reordering, reordering events can be interpreted as loss.
If the reordering and spurious loss estimates are high enough, this
could previously cause BBR to spuriously estimate that the pipe is

Since spurious loss recovery means that our overall sending will have
slowed down spuriously, this commit gives a flow more time to probe
robustly for bandwidth and decide the pipe is really full.
