Subject[PATCH 4.9 02/39] tcp_bbr: reset long-term bandwidth sampling on loss recovery undo
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Neal Cardwell <>

commit 600647d467c6d04b3954b41a6ee1795b5ae00550 upstream.

Fix BBR so that upon notification of a loss recovery undo BBR resets
long-term bandwidth sampling.

Under high reordering, reordering events can be interpreted as loss.
If the reordering and spurious loss estimates are high enough, this
can cause BBR to spuriously estimate that we are seeing loss rates
high enough to trigger long-term bandwidth estimation. To avoid that
problem, this commit resets long-term bandwidth sampling on loss
recovery undo events.
