Subject: [PATCH] tcp-tso: fix faulty logic in tcp_tso_should_defer


code does not match comment

	head = tcp_write_queue_head(sk);
	skb_mstamp_get(&now);
	age = skb_mstamp_us_delta(&now, &head->skb_mstamp);
	/* If next ACK is likely to come too late (half srtt), do not defer */
	if (age < (tp->srtt_us >> 4))
		goto send_now;

This bug will cause TSO packets being transmitted too early, and force
software to tear them apart.

When ack clocking is likely to broke, this check will try to push out
some EXTRA probe the first chance possible. Some transmission has
already happened due to Eric's work.

This patch fix the check.
