My remark had nothing to do with your patch actually :

We dont store TOS/TCLASS on TIME_WAIT sockets, so you cannot report
value in inet_diag.

But we do send packets on behalf of TIME_WAIT sockets ;)

Think about ACK messages. They probably are sent with a 0 TOS/TCLASS
field... I am not sure its a problem or not.
