ok, i've booted the latest kernel on dione and the builds are running on
it now. It's using these settings currently:

# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_syncookies
0
# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_sack
1

Just to make sure i have the right test-plan: assuming this
suspected-good kernel is trouble-free for say 48 hours, i should be able
to switch back to the suspected-broken variant, by doing:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_syncookies
without rebooting the kernel, right? And then if the bug comes back
again we've nailed it down to the area you suspect, correct?

Ingo
