The enhancements that we have been calling "BBR v2" are still under
testing, and have not been posted yet. For BBR v2, we sketched out an
overview and some lab test results at IETF 102 (links here). We'll be
giving a quick update about that effort at the ICCRG session at IETF
104 in a few weeks.
For Linux TCP BBR, the most recent upstream patches of interest are
for improving performance with high degrees of aggregation (as in
wifi, cellular, cable modems, LRO/GRO, etc) on low-RTT paths. The
biggest impacts we have seen are cases with wifi links where the
two-way propagation delay is in the range 1-10ms, so that would be a
scenario to start with, for testing. Those patches are discussed here:
Keep in mind those patches are not in 5.0.2. They will be in 5.1, or
if you have the option of building custom kernels then you can
cherry-pick them on top of your 5.0.2.

I tried a couple different tags in https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net-next.git but would always get conflicts that I didn't feel comfortable resolving. Does anyone have a suggestion / commit hash to apply them to?
