> [PATCH] tcp: Restore ordering of TCP options for the sake of inter-operability
> This is not our bug! Sadly some devices cannot cope with the change
> of TCP option ordering which was a result of the recent rewrite of
> the option code (not that there was some particular reason steming
> from the rewrite for the reordering) though any ordering of TCP
> options is perfectly legal. Thus we restore the original ordering

> Analysis of one of the case revealed (with very high probability)
