Applied, thanks Eric.

You voiced some concerns about window clamp route and socket settings
and whatnot.  But I think the route side should be OK.  When a new
connect() occurs, TCP will reinitialize the window clamp setting based
upon the route metric and other values.

The TCP_WINDOW_CLAMP socket option case is tedious however.  If we
want to preserve such settings across disconnect operations we'll need
to store two pieces of state I believe.
