nit: Can we make those names a bit more human-readable?
xfrm_iptfs_droptime, or possibly xfrm_iptfs_drop_time for better
consistency with the netlink API.

I would suggest xfrm_iptfs_initial_delay (or at least init_delay like
the netlink attribute).

Does that also apply if the queue was fully drained (no traffic for a
while) and starts being used again? That might be worth documenting
either way (sorry, I haven't processed the main patch far enough to
answer this question myself yet).

And it might be worth mentioning that all these sysctls can be
overridden per SA via the netlink API.

xfrm_iptfs_reorderwin (or reorder_win, or reorder_window)?
I'd also make the equivalent netlink attribute's name a bit longer (at
least spell out REORDER, I can live with WIN for WINDOW).

nit: move those to net/xfrm/xfrm_sysctl.c ? they're only used in that file.

Is it time to switch to a loop like in ipv6_sysctl_net_init? See
commit d2f7e56d1e40 ("ipv6: Use math to point per net sysctls into the
appropriate struct net"). OTOH we don't add sysctls for xfrm very
often so it's not critical.
