It's not a bug at all really, and it's certainly not a "critical" one. If
you happen not to like ECN on your systems add "sys/net/ipv4/tcp_ecn=0"
to /etc/sysctl.conf (which is a much better place for such things than
/etc/network/options) and be done with it. AFAIC, the default settings'll
remain exactly as they are in the kernel.
