First, thanks for all the work in this patch series. In particular,
applying Kern's check to ca_seq_rtt_us should fix some bad behavior
I've observed recently.

I only have a couple comments, so I abbreviated most of your patch.
Should rtt_meas.rtt be rtt_meas.rtt_us in order to be more consistent
with the naming of related variables?

This didn't apply to net-next for me. I see seq_rtt_us instead of
rtt_us and a check on the existence of tp->srtt_us. Maybe I've
misapplied the patch? I'll try again and test the patch series
against the bad behavior I mentioned above as soon as I can.
Hopefully today.
