There are two problems that I am aware of:
(1) We don't handle out-of-window SYNs properly (this causes
problems w/ TCP NFS if the client crashes and attempts to
(2) There is a problem reported by Christoph Badura w/ the
SYN cache and packet loss.
I am working on (2) as I have time. I plan on submitting a pullup for it
after the branch has been cut, because I need to get new features into the
tree before the cut (and this qualifies as a bugfix, and thus something that
I can submit a pullup for).
I've discussed (1) w/ kml... but I don't know if he's working on it or not.
