parenttcp: avoid min-RTT overestimation from delayed ACKs (diff)
tcp: avoid min RTT bloat by skipping RTT from delayed-ACK in BBR
A persistent connection may send tiny amount of data (e.g. health-check) for a long period of time. BBR's windowed min RTT filter may only see RTT samples from delayed ACKs causing BBR to grossly over-estimate the path delay depending how much the ACK was delayed at the receiver. This patch skips RTT samples that are likely coming from delayed ACKs. Note that it is possible the sender never obtains a valid measure to set the min RTT. In this case BBR will continue to set cwnd to initial window which seems fine because the connection is thin stream.
