[TCP] cubic: scaling error

Doug Leith observed a discrepancy between the version of CUBIC described
in the papers and the version in 2.6.18. A math error related to scaling
causes Cubic to grow too slowly.

Patch is from "Sangtae Ha" <sha2@ncsu.edu>. I validated that
it does fix the problems.

See the following to show behavior over 500ms 100 Mbit link.

Sender (2.6.19-rc3) ---  Bridge (2.6.18-rt7) ------- Receiver (2.6.19-rc3)
