Doesn't the timestamps in the TCP options defeat VJ compression completely,
so this degrades performance always when you are using a point-to-point
link (with header compression)?
Should these options be stripped by the kernel when the packet is queued
for a point-to-point interface? This way only your router needs to take
care of this, now you have to disable it on all machines on your local
