[TCP]: Add Scalable TCP congestion control module.
This patch implements Tom Kelly's Scalable TCP congestion control algorithm for the modular framework. The algorithm has some nice scaling properties, and has been used a fair bit in research, though is known to have significant fairness issues, so it's not really suitable for general purpose use.
