   Never having done this before, my best guess would be to change
   the following line in the kernel source and recompile:
   include/net/tcp.h:#define MAX_TCP_WINDOW 32767U

No, this will break TCP. It is the maximum value fittable in the
16-bit window field of the TCP header minus the sign bit which some
older implementations get wrong.
