Call me a loooser which mail will be deleted on arrival, but...

jhash_2words(const, const, ((const << 16) | $sport) ^ $random)

where $sport is 1-65535 in a loop, and $random is pseudo-random number
obtained on start.

Which is exactly the case of web server and attacker connects to 80 port
from the same IP address and different source ports.

Result with jenkins:
1 23880
2 12108
3 4040
4 1019
5 200
6 30
7 8
8 1

1 65536

Please, do not apply patch as is, I will devote this day to find where
jenkins has problems and try to fix distribution. If I will fail, then
it is up to you to decide that above results are bad or good.

Thank you.
