Back around 2000 or so, I worked at a big dot-com and we turned
on syn cookies.  On those systems, simply calculating the hashes
in kernel space made the poor pentium pros slow down and stop
responding entirely.  Not relevant any more, but still a funny
anecdote of the cure being worse than the disease.
