This adds support for BBR (Bottleneck Bandwidth and RTT) TCP
congestion control. Applications (e.g. webservers, VPN client/server)
which initiate connections from router side can benefit from this.

This provide an easier way for users to use BBR by selecting /
installing kmod-tcp-bbr instead of altering kernel config and
compiling firmware by themselves.
