Subject[RFC PATCH 4.4] Documentation/network: reword kernel version reference
It seemed odd to say "since 4.17" in a 4.4 kernel. Consider
rewording the reference to indicate where in the stable series
it was introduced as well as where it originated.

Signed-off-by: Mark Rustad <>


Does this brief elaboration add useful information? It seems to
me that someone using a particular series of stable kernels would
find this information to be helpful or at least potentially less
confusing to a non-developer.

begins to remove incomplete fragment queues to free up resources.
The kernel still accepts new fragments for defragmentation.
