Conceptually this seems OK, though I'd probably make some adjustments
to the commit log.

However, re-reading *p looks strange to me. Why don't we just refactor
this to preserve everything but the TID and ACK policy, after all, we
have just previous created this all zeroed in most cases, so it won't
really matter.

Like this:
