parenttcp_bbr: introduce bbr_init_pacing_rate_from_rtt() helper (diff)
tcp_bbr: remove sk_pacing_rate=0 transient during init
Fix a corner case noticed by Eric Dumazet, where BBR's setting sk->sk_pacing_rate to 0 during initialization could theoretically cause packets in the sending host to hang if there were packets "in flight" in the pacing infrastructure at the time the BBR congestion control state is initialized. This could occur if the pacing infrastructure happened to race with bbr_init() in a way such that the pacer read the 0 rather than the immediately following non-zero pacing rate.
