Subject: Re: [PATCH] tcp: reduce SYN-ACK retrans for TCP_DEFER_ACCEPT

Julian Anastasov a écrit :
> 	Change SYN-ACK retransmitting code for the TCP_DEFER_ACCEPT
> users to not retransmit SYN-ACKs during the deferring period if
> ACK from client was received. The goal is to reduce traffic
> during the deferring period. When the period is finished
> we continue with sending SYN-ACKs (at least one) but this time
> any traffic from client will change the request to established
> socket allowing application to terminate it properly.
> Also, do not drop acked request if sending of SYN-ACK fails.
