Subject: [TCP]: Update references in two old comments

[TCP]: Update references in two old comments

This updates references to drafts in comments which must be about 10
years old.  Internet draft draft-ietf-tcpimpl-prob-03.txt expired in 1998
and was replaced by RFC 2525 in March 1999.

Section 3.10 of the draft maps almost identically into section 2.17 of RFC
2525: both are entitled "Failure to RST on close with data pending", the
differences in text body amount to a typo and minor sentence change.
