Please don't, it's not the right fix, it fixed a bug that was
introduced post 2.6.24 by this commit:

commit 68f8353b480e5f2e136c38a511abdbb88eaa8ce2

[TCP]: Rewrite SACK block processing & sack_recv_cache use


There's something else wrong with the 2.6.24.y. I already knew that and
was therefore planning next to run extensive set of tests on 2.6.24ish
kernel with some torrent mixed with some netem stimuli but haven't yet had
time for that as I had to find and resolve an hw incompatibility issues
between ddr2s and mobo before being a week away. I'll post an 2.6.24.y
adapted TCP debug patch once I get that done for my tests (in case
somebody else is interested in running with it besides me).

Btw, it would have been polite to cc me as well (I suppose you just didn't
notice that somebody dropped me in between :-)), not a big prob though as
I found it out early anyway because I'm trying to catch up what has been
reported against TCP during my week away.
