Subject: [PATCH net-next 4/4] mptcp: update misleading comments.

From: Paolo Abeni <pabeni@...hat.com>

The MPTCP data path is quite complex and hard to understend even
without some foggy comments referring to modified code and/or
completely misleading from the beginning.

Update a few of them to more accurately describing the current
status.
