[CCID3]: Use initial RTT sample from SYN exchange
Gerrit Renker [Tue, 20 Mar 2007 18:31:56 +0000 (15:31 -0300)]
The patch follows the following recommendation made in an erratum to RFC 4342:

  "Senders MAY additionally make use of other available RTT measurements,
   including those from the initial Request-Response packet exchange."

It implements larger initial windows with regard to this inital RTT measurement,
using the mechanism suggested in draft-ietf-dccp-rfc3448bis, section 4.2.
