CC netdev

This reminds me a similar problem we had in the past, fixed with commit
1fdf475a (tcp: tcp_disconnect() should clear window_clamp)

But tcp_disconnect() already clears sk->sk_shutdown

If NFS calls tcp_disconnect(), then shutdown(), there is a problem.

Maybe xs_tcp_shutdown() should make some sanity tests ?

Following sequence is legal, and your patch might break it.

fd = socket(...);
shutdown(fd, SHUT_WR);
...
connect(fd, ...);
