Anyway, I'm guilty of not diving into the code to see if this is fixed.
If noone says "yes it is" or "no it isn't", I'll try and figure it out
but I'll bet somebody out there already knows.

I think its done via sysctl now:

[root:3] caffeine:~# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_max_syn_backlog

Before that I think is was hard-coded to 128 or something? I don't know that
is has even been as low as that emplyed by some BSDs (5?)
