tcp/dccp: drop SYN packets if accept queue is full
Per listen(fd, backlog) rules, there is really no point accepting a SYN, sending a SYNACK, and dropping the following ACK packet if accept queue is full, because application is not draining accept queue fast enough. This behavior is fooling TCP clients that believe they established a flow, while there is nothing at server side. They might then send about 10 MSS (if using IW10) that will be dropped anyway while server is under stress.
