The TCP delayed ACK logic isn't aware of LRO passing up large aggregated segments thinking it received only one segment. This causes it to enable the delay the ACK for 100ms to wait for another segment which may never come because all the data was received already. Doing delayed ACK for LRO segments is bogus for two reasons: a) it pushes us further away from acking every other packet; b) it introduces additional delay in responding to the sender. The latter is especially bad because it is in the nature of LRO to aggregated all segments of a burst with no more coming until an ACK is sent back. Change the delayed ACK logic to detect LRO segments by being larger than the MSS for this connection and issuing an immediate ACK for them to keep the ACK clock ticking without interruption.
