I believe third problem comes from commit 4957faad
(TCPCT part 1g: Responder Cookie => Initiator), from William Allen
Simpson.

When a SYN-ACK packet is built (in tcp_synack_options()),
it specifically forbids a TIMESTAMP option to be included if SACK is
also selected :

doing_ts &= !ireq->sack_ok;

Problem is this mask is done on a local variable. socket is still marked
as being timestamp enabled.


Later, when we build tcp options for data packets, we _include_ a
timestamp, while our SYNACK didnt mention the option.  

So the following trafic can happen (and fails) :
