Subject:  [Patch v2 1/1] [tcp/dccp]: Consolidate duplicate code which does
	RFC3390 conversion

Please find below recoded patch as requested. 

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Patch v2 <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

tcp/dccp: Consolidate duplicate code which does RFC3390 conversion

This patch consolidates the code common to TCP and CCID-2:

 * TCP uses RFC 3390 in a packet-oriented manner (tcp_input.c) and
 * CCID-2 uses RFC 3390 in packet-oriented manner (RFC 4341).
