Subject: [TCP bug, regression] stuck distcc connections in latest -git

the permanently hug distcc kernel build bug triggered again, twice. 
First time it happened yesterday, i left it running overnight and it 
never recovered after a 14+ hours of wait.

It shows a similar pattern, 'ESTABLISHED' state on both sides, but the 
client-side is stuck and the server (running latest kernel) is seemingly 
clueless about that fact:

 client:

  Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address       Foreign Address     State
  tcp        0 375450 10.0.1.16:39201     10.0.1.19:3632      ESTABLISHED

 server:

  Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address       Foreign Address     State
  tcp        0      0 10.0.1.19:3632      10.0.1.16:39201     ESTABLISHED

i waited ~30 minutes in this second case.

the client (running 2.6.24) does periodic 120 seconds retransmits:

07:44:48.255669 IP phoenix.distcc > dione.39201: . ack 3216 win 65535

the server (running the latest kernel) responds:

 [ i.e. no change - no pending packets ]

I've started a longer capture session as well - it seems the TCP stack 
is slowly cycling through retransmissions of 536-byte packets, with 
375450 bytes pending? At 120 seconds a pop that would be about 23 hours 
to make any progress on - but i'm not sure i interpreted that right. It 
all looks very weird.

The timestamps of the two boxes are synced up to within about 1 second:

  earth4:~> for N in dione phoenix; do ssh $N date; done
  Thu Jul 24 07:44:02 CEST 2008
  Thu Jul 24 07:44:02 CEST 2008

( but the two boxes are responding to each other fine, so ordering of 
  events is not a question here. )

Any other state you'd like to see before i continue with -tip testing?
