Thanks for pointing this significant conceptual difference.

Is there a way to predict the amount of overhead or the in-band TCP
data that can be hold ?

in my tests I'm doing the following:
net.ipv4.tcp_adv_win_scale = 14
net.ipv4.tcp_rmem = 4096 87380 X*2
net.ipv4.tcp_wmem = 4096 65536 X*2
net.core.rmem_max = X*2 + 10 * 2^20 # 10MB available over what i use
net.core.wmem_max = X*2 + 10 * 2^20 # same

on both the receiver and sender pc's.. doing this the cwnd at the
sender grows till X/RTT otherwise it is limited by the receiver

in this way i get a good approximation
