tcp: add tcp_min_snd_mss sysctl
commit 5f3e2bf008c2221478101ee72f5cb4654b9fc363 upstream. Some TCP peers announce a very small MSS option in their SYN and/or SYN/ACK messages. This forces the stack to send packets with a very high network/cpu overhead. Linux has enforced a minimal value of 48. Since this value includes the size of TCP options, and that the options can consume up to 40 bytes, this means that each segment can include only 8 bytes of payload. In some cases, it can be useful to increase the minimal value to a saner value. We still let the default to 48 (TCP_MIN_SND_MSS), for compatibility reasons. Note that TCP_MAXSEG socket option enforces a minimal value of (TCP_MIN_MSS). David Miller increased this minimal value in commit c39508d6f118 ("tcp: Make TCP_MAXSEG minimum more correct.") from 64 to 88. We might in the future merge TCP_MIN_SND_MSS and TCP_MIN_MSS.
