To handle the case of not having a separate TIME-WAIT table
(sorry for being unclear). Or alternatively several conditionals.

The TIME-WAIT half of the hash table is most useful on
clients actually.

I mean, just double the amount you "downsize" the TCP established
hash table if it bothers you that much.

Franks a lot,
