My final year project is the implementation of T/TCP as a module for
linux, so you'll probably see me a number times over the next few months.
The first question I wish to ask involves the version numbers of the files
for basic networking, tcp.h, ip.h route.h

These files are the directory /usr/src/linux/include/linux/
and they are also in the directory /usr/src/linux/include/net

with the newer versions in the include/net directory, if any changes were
to be made to these files, (and some others) which of the directories
should I work out of? And do all the other files only reference one of the

Should I make changes to both of the files to cover all possibilities?
