Maybe I did not make clear where the DoS is. Well my machine DOES NOT
hang. But the NIC is busy replying thousands of RST's and thus it cannot
even send a single packet outside to the pc next door. That is, its
network is dead.

I did not say I want to remember states. I said to read what kernel
has already in /proc/net/tcp but faster and kinda more native, to use
it for a flash of a second.
