    The point is we are sending a bigger window scale then we need to.
    The maximum receive window is limited by tcp_rmem[2], so we only need to
    allow that much. Having a different sysctl just for that is unnecessary and
    potentially confusing.

    The default tcp_rmem[2] is 174760, so we only need a wscale of 2 to represent
    that. We were sending 7.
