[Wireshark-dev] The TCP dissector needs an update

Hi,

I think the TCP dissector needs an update in the reassembly code.
Other dissectors does have a link to the reassembled content in each
fragment, but the TCP dissector does not (because it uses
proto_tree_add_text() for the "TCP segment data" entry). When looking
at the code I find a lot of special handling, do we need this? Can't
we use the common reassembly routines? Or maybe refactor some
routines?

Any takers?
