Subject: net-next-2.6 [PATCH 0/5] dccp: Feature negotiation - begin of Part II (core)

Hi Dave,

I would like to continue with the patches in the Core set, the second
out of three blocks. If the time of submission is inconvenient, please
let me know, I will then resubmit later.

Patches have been compile-tested with sparse checking enabled.


Commit summary:
The set begins the second set (out of three) of the feature negotiation patches,
to provide a self-contained feature negotiation API for the DCCP protocol.

The whole set is structured into 3 main blocks - (1) basis, (2) core,
(3) integration and cleanup.

Within these blocks, this set introduces the first parts of a new API to 
communicate feature-negotiation changes via socket options.

List of patches in this set:
Patch #1: Provides a mechanism to resolve CCID-dependent features. Since
          CCIDs are a server-priority feature, this is done by the server.
Patch #2: Deprecates old featneg API, as it was dangerous/clumsy.
Patch #3: Support to negotiate checksum-coverage values (as in UDP-Lite).
Patch #4: Deprecates Ack Ratio sysctl, to enable automatic updating.
Patch #5: Tidies up the setsockopt interface for new additions.

The set is also available for viewing online, beginning at;a=commitdiff;h=1a2c162f1f3fee8965ef4ea3f509cd5a88be6c4f
