    Thanks, still it is unclear to me why are we
    downsizing the advertised window(rcv_wnd) to cwnd?
    To defeat disobeying sender, or something like below?

    Suppose when wscale is zero, it is now checking mss > 1,
    and perhaps the intention was to check mss > rcv_wnd,
    where mss is greater than advertised, and we still
    want to advertise window to spwan 2 to 4 cwnd packets.

    And also in the following line,
    if (*rcv_wscale && sysctl_tcp_app_win && space>=mss &&
    space - max((space>>sysctl_tcp_app_win), mss>>*rcv_wscale) <

    space is actual_space>>rcv_wscale, mss is actual value.
    Why are we checking space>=mss, which are in different
    scales? The second line is doing max on space and mss
    on same scales, and looks right.
