    Looking over the code I expect this is over zealous checking of
    potential bug conditions on my part. You can get the above message
    if TCP is doing a zero window probe when it gets the FIN
    from the far end. I've revised the bug check to actually look for
    the error condition I'm worried about rather than the short cut
    check I was using.

    I'll send a patch to Linus a little later today.
