It would at best be a partial solution which would only work when the 
link failover/whatnot happened on the same system/node as the TCP 
endpoint.  Then it can be some sort of call-back to TCP or the like.

If this failover is out in the middle of the cloud the only way to get a 
notification back to TCP would be by sending it a packet of some sort 
and I don't see that happening.
