You could implement it that way, but I'd rather think of it as a limitation
of the sockets API being built upon the netconn API: the netconn API simply
does not provide the functionality that we need here: we would need a
netconn_recved callback that effectively does the window update.

A little off topic: I think this is a major performance whole in TCP RX: we
should try to prevent calling back into the stack (do_recv) every time a
packet is received. Most of the time, tcp_recved does nothing and the places
where tcp_ack_now is called that could maybe also be solved differently (e.g.
on next input packet)?
