Subject[PATCH 4.14 172/496] net/tcp/illinois: replace broken algorithm reference link
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Joey Pabalinas <joeypabalinas@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit ecc832758a654e375924ebf06a4ac971acb5ce60 ]

The link to the pdf containing the algorithm description is now a
dead link; it seems http://www.ifp.illinois.edu/~srikant/ has been
moved to https://sites.google.com/a/illinois.edu/srikant/ and none of
the original papers can be found there...

I have replaced it with the only working copy I was able to find.

n.b. there is also a copy available at:

http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.296.6350&rep=rep1&type=pdf

However, this seems to only be a *cached* version, so I am unsure
exactly how reliable that link can be expected to remain over time
and have decided against using that one.
