Subject: [PATCH] tcp: cubic update for net-2.6.22

The following update received from Injong updates TCP cubic to the latest
version. I am running more complete tests and will have results after 4/1.

According to Injong: the new version improves on its scalability,
fairness and stability.  So in all properties, we confirmed it shows better
performance.

NCSU results (for 2.6.18 and 2.6.20) available:
	http://netsrv.csc.ncsu.edu/wiki/index.php/TCP_Testing

This version is described in a new Internet draft for CUBIC.
