RETRANSSEGS is meant to count data segments retransmits, not pure
control frames.

Similarly for TCPTIMEOUTS, it's mean for data retransmit timeouts.

If you overload these statistics with other similar events, they
become less meaningful.

Finally, bumping TCP specific statistics from the generic INET
connection oriented socket code is a huge no-no.  That code is
written to be protocol agnostic.
