// The tickler sends a regular 0 byte UDP heartbeat out to a
// particular address for a short time after it has been touched. This
// is used on some mobile wifi chipsets to mitigate Power Save Polling
// (PSP) Mode when we are anticipating a response packet
// soon. Typically PSP adds 100ms of latency to a read event because
// the packet delivery is not triggered until the 802.11 beacon is
// delivered to the host (100ms is the standard Access Point
// configuration for the beacon interval.) Requesting a frequent
// transmission and getting a CTS frame from the AP at least that
// frequently allows for low latency receives when we have reason to
// expect them (e.g a SYN-ACK).
// The tickler is used to allow RTT based phases of web transport to
// complete quickly when on wifi - ARP, DNS, TCP handshake, SSL
// handshake, HTTP headers, and the TCP slow start phase. The
// transaction is given up to 400 miliseconds by default to get
// through those phases before the tickler is disabled.
// The tickler only applies to wifi on mobile right now. Hopefully it
// can also be restricted to particular handset models in the future.
