Yes, it fixes.

After the patch curl-loader works with patched 2.6.19.7 and
with patched 2.6.20.7 using simulteneous 3000 local connections smothly,
and even better than with referred as a "good" 2.6.18.3.


Besides that the tcp_mem status for my machine:

kernel                             tcp_mem
------------------------------------------------------
2.6.19.7                     3072    4096     6144
2.6.19.7-patched    45696   60928   91392
2.6.20.7                     3072    4096     6144
2.6.20.7-patched    45696   60928   91392

The patch was applied smothly just with line offsets.
