Thanks Willy.

I disagree: the base for testing should be clear(ly communicated).

There are two diffs from Eric to #1: add a trace event for
prandom_u32() and #2: a removal of prandom_u32() call in
tcp_conn_request().
In case you have not seen.
The first was helpful for playing with linux-perf.
I have tested both together with [2].
