Socket option IPTOS_LOWDELAY no longer works

The 'socket options' option IPTOS_LOWDELAY no longer works in 2.0.2.  I 
had this parameter set in 1.9.18p10 however now when a samba process is 
started a warning of 'Unknown socket option IPTOS_LOWDELAY' is displayed.

The man for smb.conf states the following:

              You  may  find  that on some systems Samba will say
              "Unknown socket option" when you supply an  option.
              This  means  you either incorrectly typed it or you
              need to add an include file to includes.h for  your
              OS.   If  the  latter  is  the case please send the
              patch to samba-bugs at

Did an include get left out?

Under Linux 2.2, IPTOS_LOWDELAY is defined in

Any help will be appreciated.
