Update to RFC793's TCP sequence number validation checks


Dave Borman and me have posted an IETF Internet-Draft
that fixes an existing bug in the RFC 793 TCP sequence number validation

The proposed fix has been implemented in open source stacks for many
years, so we're essentially updating the specs accordingly.

The IETF's TCPM working group chairs wanted to to some reviews of this
(very short) Internet-Draft before it is adopted as a working group item.

If you have a few minutes, please take a look, and post your
comments/review to <> (and make sure to CC me). This will
be of much help, and having feedback from the implementers' community
would be really valuable.
