RFC2581 -- TCP Congestion Control-- suggests to count SMSS (acknowledged
packets) in cwnd increment.
RFC3465 -- TCP Congestion Control with Appropriate Byte Counting (ABC)--
suggests to count the acknowledged byte instead of packets in cwnd

Linux 2.6.16 (and later versions) implemented ABC for Reno.
ABC is not implemented for other congestion control algorithms like HS-TCP
yet. (Maybe later versions will implement ABC for other congestion control
algorithms. But not sure yet...)
