I need some information about the TCP implementation. I didn't find any
information in my Linux Kernel book or in any other tutorial about TCP and I
do not really understand the tcp.c

The kernel should remove SYN packets if it doesn't recive the final ACK. But
where is that implemented in the Linux Kernel?
