        Title           : TRILL: ECN (Explicit Congestion Notification) Support
        Authors         : Donald E. Eastlake

   Explicit congestion notification (ECN) allows a forwarding element to
   notify downstream devices, including the destination, of the onset of
   congestion without having to drop packets. This can improve network
   efficiency through better congestion control without packet drops.
   This document extends ECN to TRILL switches, including integration
   with IP ECN, and provides for ECN marking in the TRILL Header
   Extension Flags Word (see RFC 7179).
