See my comment, on bug report, Linux is doing Silly Window Syndrome avoidance (RFC 813)
as required in host requirements RFC1122
188.8.131.52 When to Send Data
A TCP MUST include a SWS avoidance algorithm in the sender.
A TCP SHOULD implement the Nagle Algorithm [TCP:9] to
coalesce short segments. However, there MUST be a way for
an application to disable the Nagle algorithm on an
individual connection. In all cases, sending data is also
subject to the limitation imposed by the Slow Start
algorithm (Section 184.108.40.206).
The Linux mechanism to disable Nagle is setsockopt(TCP_NODELAY).
