> It appears TCP coalescing, and more specifically commit b081f85c297
> (net: implement tcp coalescing in tcp_queue_rcv()) should take care of
> possible segment overlaps in receive queue. This was properly done in
> the case of out_or_order_queue by the caller.
> For example, segment at tail of queue have sequence 1000-2000, and we
> add a segment with sequence 1500-2500.
> This can happen in case of retransmits.
> In this case, just don't do the coalescing.
