    LWIP_HOOK_TCP_ISN: added CHANGELOG/fixed comment

commit a8b986bbb67820a59be567d280b6be762ef65e92
Author: David van Moolenbroek <address@hidden>
Date:   Wed Oct 26 21:24:46 2016 +0000

    Add hook for TCP Initial Sequence Number generation
    lwIP produces a TCP Initial Sequence Number (ISN) for each new TCP
    connection. The current algorithm is simple and predictable however.
    The result is that lwIP TCP connections may be the target of TCP
    spoofing attacks.  The problem of such attacks is well known, and a
    recommended ISN generation algorithm is standardized in RFC 6528.
    This algorithm requires a high-resolution timer and cryptographic
    hashing function, though.  The implementation (or best-effort
    approximation) of both of these aspects is well beyond the scope of
    lwIP itself.
    For that reason, this patch adds LWIP_HOOK_TCP_ISN, a hook that
    allows each platform to implement its own ISN generation using
    locally available means.  The hook provides full flexibility, in
    that the hook may generate anything from a simple random number
    (by being set to LWIP_RAND()) to a full RFC 6528 implementation.
    Implementation note:
    Users of the hook would typically declare the function prototype of
    the hook function in arch/cc.h, as this is the last place where such
    prototypes can be supplied.  However, at that point, the ip_addr_t
    type has not yet been defined.  For that reason, this patch removes
    the leading underscore from "struct _ip_addr", so that a prototype
    of the hook function can use "struct ip_addr" instead of "ip_addr_t".
