That's the wrong solution.  It prevents people who want to use ECN from
using it.  The correct solution is to disable it in /etc/sysctl.conf.
However, I just had a look, and sysctl.conf is in procps which isn't
essential.  So we may need to move this functionality to an essential
package, perhaps sysvinit.
