(Interesting, this pr is closed but the audit trail doesn't show

SunOS4 has a kernel bug in the allocation of memory for the mbuf table.
When it fills up, the result is a Panic the next time any routine tries
to set something in an imaginary mbuf beyond the range of the table.
Due to buggy browser behavior and the lack of a FIN_WAIT_2 timeout
on SunOS4, "KeepAlive Off" is necessary to avoid filling up the mbuf
table on busy sites.
