Spurious loss event detection with ECN

This is the idea of using the ECN-Nonce (in the no-congestion case) to detect spurious loss events, documented in:

Michael Welzl: "Using the ECN Nonce to detect Spurious Loss Events in TCP", IEEE Globecom 2008, 30 November - 4 December 2008, New Orleans, LA USA.

which is based on Thomas Raffler's master thesis on this topic:
Here is the code that he used, including a ns-2.29 directory which was changed as described in the thesis:

The next step will be to develop and test the idea with real-life code, for which Armin Abfalterer wrote an updated implementation of the ECN Nonce for Linux (kernel 2.6.29.6): patch and module
