Description

Specifically:

TCP_CONN_ABORT_THRESHOLD
TCP_CONN_NOTIFY_THRESHOLD
TCP_ABORT_THRESHOLD
TCP_NOTIFY_THRESHOLD
TCP_RTO_{INITIAL,MIN,MAX} (retransmit timers)
TCP_RECVDSTADDR (analogous to IP_RECVDSTADDR?)
TCP_LINGER2 (TIME_WAIT time?)
TCP_INIT_CWND

Arguably all these should be documented in tcp(7P)

The ABORT are methods to tweak the TCP timeouts -- e.g. to fail a connect() call early.
