    tcp: Add a socket option to rack
    so we can test various changes to the slop value in timers.
    Timer_slop, in TCP, has been 200ms for a long time. This value dates back
    a long time when delayed ack timers were longer and links were slower. A
    200ms timer slop allows 1 MSS to be sent over a 60kbps link. Its possible that
    lowering this value to something more in line with todays delayed ack values (40ms)
    might improve TCP. This bit of code makes it so rack can, via a socket option,
    adjust the timer slop.
