Subject: [PATCH] tcp: fix TCP_DEFER_ACCEPT retrans calculation


	Fix TCP_DEFER_ACCEPT conversion between seconds and
retransmission to match the TCP SYN-ACK retransmission periods
because the time is converted to such retransmissions. The old
algorithm selects one more retransmission in some cases. Allow
up to 255 retransmissions.

Signed-off-by: Julian Anastasov <ja@....bg>

	Not sure if this is the right place to put both
functions ...
