Thanks for the patch. I forgot to mention that excessively big cwnd
(or bufferbloat) does play a part in Hash-Cast. We found that using
TCP Vegas does not show unfairness even in the presence of hash
collision among TCP flows. Comparing Vegas and Cubic, we found that
Vegas has a much smaller cwnd.

Best,
