Subject: [PATCH] Fix corrupt TCP packets when options space overflows with MD5SIG enabled

When MD5 signatures are turned on we can end up with syntactically invalid
packets with a header length < 20 bytes. This is because tcp_header_size
overflows with 12 bytes of timestamp, 20 bytes of signature and > 8 bytes of
SACK option.

Since we can't fit any SACK blocks in the final 8 bytes of options space, and
the MD5 signature is more important, we disable including SACK, or even
advertising it, when MD5 is enabled.
