Check out "ECN target support" in the 2.4 kernel netfilter config.

  You can use this target to remove the ECN bits from the IPv4 header of
  an IP packet.  This is particularly useful, if you need to work around
  existing ECN blackholes on the internet, but don't want to disable
  ECN support in general.
