    tcp: switch rtt estimations to usec resolution · 740b0f18

    Upcoming congestion controls for TCP require usec resolution for RTT
    estimations. Millisecond resolution is simply not enough these days.
    
    FQ/pacing in DC environments also require this change for finer control
    and removal of bimodal behavior due to the current hack in
    tcp_update_pacing_rate() for 'small rtt'
    
    TCP_CONG_RTT_STAMP is no longer needed.
    
    As Julian Anastasov pointed out, we need to keep user compatibility :
    tcp_metrics used to export RTT and RTTVAR in msec resolution,
    so we added RTT_US and RTTVAR_US. An iproute2 patch is needed
    to use the new attributes if provided by the kernel.
    
    In this example ss command displays a srtt of 32 usecs (10Gbit link)
    
    lpk51:~# ./ss -i dst lpk52
    Netid  State      Recv-Q Send-Q   Local Address:Port       Peer

    Updated iproute2 ip command displays :
    
    lpk51:~# ./ip tcp_metrics | grep 10.246.11.52

    10.246.11.51
    
    Old binary displays :
    
    lpk51:~# ip tcp_metrics | grep 10.246.11.52
    10.246.11.52 age 561.914sec cwnd 10 rtt 250us rttvar 125us source
