Subject[011/205] tcp: tcp_synack_options() fix
2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit de213e5eedecdfb1b1eea7e6be28bc64cac5c078 ]

Commit 33ad798c924b4a (tcp: options clean up) introduced a problem
if MD5+SACK+timestamps were used in initial SYN message.

Some stacks (old linux for example) try to negotiate MD5+SACK+TSTAMP
sessions, but since 40 bytes of tcp options space are not enough to
store all the bits needed, we chose to disable timestamps in this case.

We send a SYN-ACK _without_ timestamp option, but socket has timestamps
enabled and all further outgoing messages contain a TS block, all with
the initial timestamp of the remote peer.

Fix is to really disable timestamps option for the whole session.
