Subject: [RFC PATCH 03/21] tcp: Pad TCP options out to a fixed size

The "header splitting" feature used by netgpu doesn't actually parse
the incoming packet header.  Instead, it splits the packet at a fixed
offset.  In order for this to work, the sender needs to send packets
with a fixed header size.

(Obviously not for upstream committing, just for prototyping)
