The variable behind `net.inet.tcp.win_scale' seems to be only active
at TCP init time. There is more place in the code where RFC1323
related options seems hardcoded. It should be the same problem with
the timestamp option.

I guess not, the current code seems to evaluate variables before the
system has a chance to set them.
