[sclug] OT: Android 1.5 TCP options ordering bug

Hi -

I'm clutching at straws a bit here as I'm not expecting to get any sense out
of T-Mobile or HTC.

Android 1.5 (as used on my new T-Mobile G2 Touch) uses
kernel 2.6.27 which introduced a bug in the ordering of TCP options.  As a
result, some routers (e.g.  my ZyXEL ADSL router, for one) refuse to route
packets originating from an Android 1.5 device.

Are there any easy Android-side fixes for this problem?
