Is such a small MSS valid?  All IP networks are supposed to guarantee
that they can receive a segment of 576 bytes without fragmenting, so
assuming the default header sizes that would make a TCP segment of 536
bytes.  While setting it smaller might be OK in most situations, you
might find that this causes interoperability problems with other stacks,
as they could ignore your MSS request and just use 536 instead.
