Er, since you mention it, the first message in thread did include this link:
http://www.kernel.org/git/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=314324121f9b94b2ca657a494cf2b9cb0e4a28cc
and I even pasted the patch description there, but oh well.

Now that Roland helped us clear it all up, and now that it has been clarified
that reverting this patch gives us back most of the performance, is the answer
to my question the same?

What I was trying to figure out was, how can we re-enable the trick without
hurting TSO? Could a solution be to simply look at the frame size, and call
tcp_send_delayed_ack if the frame size is small?
