Sockets stuck in SYN_RCVD (re(4), RELENG_7, i386)

Some additional information.

Today I have run the re(4) interface at 100 Mbps for a few
hours.  The count did still increase, so it's not a GigE-
only problem.

The I disabled RXCSUM,TXCSUM on the interface.  Again, the
counter still increased.  So hardware checksumming isn't
the cause of the problem either.

Anything else I could try?

 > net.inet.tcp.syncache.count: 702

It's now at 731.

Best regards
