tcp_bbr: record "full bw reached" decision in new full_bw_reached bit
This commit records the "full bw reached" decision in a new full_bw_reached bit. This is a pure refactor that does not change the current behavior, but enables subsequent fixes and improvements. In particular, this enables simple and clean fixes because the full_bw and full_bw_cnt can be unconditionally zeroed without worrying about forgetting that we estimated we filled the pipe in Startup. And it enables future improvements because multiple code paths can be used for estimating that we filled the pipe in Startup; any new code paths only need to set this bit when they think the pipe is full. Note that this fix intentionally reduces the width of the full_bw_cnt counter, since we have never used the most significant bit.
