Hmm... I am puzzled.

1) If you touch this code, please use min_t() macro to be consistent
with prior line ? Please note I dont advocate a general use of these
min/max macros, just some consistency in the same page of code.

2) Prior line still has the magic 40 value.
    (I personally like 40 more than sizeof(struct tcphdr) +
sizeof(struct iphdr)), its not like 40 is going to change one day :)

3) What is the maximum datagram size in ipv4.
      (Say you name this IPV4_MAXPLEN)

4) What would be the meaning of having TCP MSS bigger than
    IPV4_MAXPLEN - 40 ?
