Make use of the stats(3) framework in the TCP stack.
This makes it possible to retrieve per-connection statistical
information such as the receive window size, RTT, or goodput,
using a newly added TCP_STATS getsockopt(3) option, and extract
them using the stats_voistat_fetch(3) API.
See the net/tcprtt port for an example consumer of this API.
Compared to the existing TCP_INFO system, the main differences
are that this mechanism is easy to extend without breaking ABI,
and provides statistical information instead of raw "snapshots"
of values at a given point in time. stats(3) is more generic
and can be used in both userland and the kernel.
