so here are the results on a net-2.6.24 kernel. 

I've put the patchset here to make sure it's correct: 

	http://legoater.free.fr/patches/2.6.23/net-2.6.24.git-tcp_fastretrans/

and plenty of logs :

	http://legoater.free.fr/patches/2.6.23/net-2.6.24.git-tcp_fastretrans.messages

FYI, config is here :

	http://legoater.free.fr/patches/2.6.23/net-2.6.24.git-tcp_fastretrans.config
