[TCP]: Restrict congestion control choices.
Allow normal users to only choose among a restricted set of congestion control choices. The default is reno and what ever has been configured as default. But the policy can be changed by administrator at any time. For example, to allow any choice: cp /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_available_congestion_control \ /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_allowed_congestion_control Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: David S.
