Is there a patch available that will queue the data that is received in a

T/TCP expects to see data, but looking at the comments in the file
tcp_input.c from 2.1.86 I see that it opens up the way for a denial of
service attack. Will this option be implemented in future versions of the

If there isn't a patch available, what would be the best way of going
about queueing the data, storing it in a seperate queue in the sock
structure and then using the data when ready?
