NetBSD-SoC: TCP ECN support

What is it?

ECN stands for Explicit Congestion Notification and is another TCP congestion control algorithm to make your delay-sensitive low-traffic applications smoother.

It works by marking packets (the router) when a congestion is about to occur. Before congestion occurs the sender has the chance to reduce the transmission window, thus avoiding dropped packets.
