So that we can make forward progress here, please confirm that the
following patch against -tip makes your problems go away for good.

Once you can confirm I will push it to Linus.


tcp: Revert reset of deferred accept changes in 2.6.26

539fae89bebd16ebeafd57a87169bc56eb530d76 ("[TCP]: TCP_DEFER_ACCEPT
