Reno TCP

The Reno TCP agent is very similar to the Tahoe TCP agent, except it also includes fast recovery, where the current congestion window is ``inflated'' by the number of duplicate ACKs the TCP sender has received before receiving a new ACK. A ``new ACK'' refers to any ACK with a value higher than the higest seen so far. In addition, the Reno TCP agent does not return to slow-start during a fast retransmit. Rather, it reduces sets the congestion window to half the current window and resets ssthresh_ to match this value.
