Description (partial)

ZBFW SYN cookie counter shows positive number although the real number of half open sessions have dropped to zero. 

Since the counter is used to trigger SYN cookie once it is over the configured limit, this is causing the SYN cookie protection to always kick in regardless of the real situation, which drags down the network performance.

SYN cookie feature needs to be configured, and it is configured to protect per VRF or global number of half open sessions.

The counter error only happens under some race condition which needs particular and supposedly high traffic load to trigger
