Remember that slow start is much older than NetBSD; I don't think
you'll find any versions of the code that don't have it.  And, since
turning it off is regarded as a very unfriendly thing to do on the
Internet, I suspect that no one saw any reason to add such a sysctl.
Your need is legitimate, but I think you'll have to modify the code
