Subject: [PATCH net] tcp: fix receive buffer autotuning to trigger for any valid advertised MSS

    Previously receiver buffer auto-tuning starts after receiving
    one advertised window amount of data.After the initial
    receiver buffer was raised by
    commit a337531b942b ("tcp: up initial rmem to 128KB
    and SYN rwin to around 64KB"),the receiver buffer may
    take too long for TCP autotuning to start raising
    the receiver buffer size.
    commit 041a14d26715 ("tcp: start receiver buffer autotuning sooner")
    tried to decrease the threshold at which TCP auto-tuning starts
    but it's doesn't work well in some environments
    where the receiver has large MTU (9001) especially with high RTT
    connections as in these environments rcvq_space.space will be the same
    as rcv_wnd so TCP autotuning will never start because
    sender can't send more than rcv_wnd size in one round trip.
    To address this issue this patch is decreasing the initial
    rcvq_space.space so TCP autotuning kicks in whenever the sender is
    able to send more than 5360 bytes in one round trip regardless the
    receiver's configured MTU.

    Fixes: a337531b942b ("tcp: up initial rmem to 128KB and SYN rwin to around 64KB")
    Fixes: 041a14d26715 ("tcp: start receiver buffer autotuning sooner")
