Ok. The code is the heart of the congestion control in our TCP stack.
I'm moving stuff around and creating a new "class" a-la objective
programming (in this case a struct with three function pointers).
This way we can separate the congestion control algorithms we have in
our source tree.
Basically with this we should be able to remove the checks for if
(tcp_newreno) or if (tcp_westwood), etc.
Note that I'm not adding new code, hence the subject "refactoring".
