This value is not used at all, so changing it has no effect in the 2.4
version of the packet patch. I think I will remove it from the next patch
to avoid confusion.

The 2.5 version does use this value, but I wouldn't recommend trying that
version unless you are a programmer and want to spend some time trying to
figure out how to fix the compile/link errors usually seen with a vanilla
2.5 kernel.
