Dear Greg,

No idea if this is the proper location to report this or if I should inform
stable@xxxxxx , but:

This backport alone is useless without backporting following 2 commits below
also, unless the 2 wifi devices using dynack start off at very close

Their commits messages indicate them as improvements, but they should be
considered as fixes.

It's safe to add them to all stables involved (4.20, 4.19, 4.14, 4.9)
Thanks, that looks reasonable, now queued up.

Hi Greg,

Just noticed the primary dynack patch also got merged into 4.4 stable rc

Could you also apply the 2 fixes above to 4.4?

Checked older versions (< 4.4) .. and they are not required there.

Highly appreciated,
