            Bug ID: 73021
           Summary: TCP_USER_TIMEOUT not working when interface is taken
                    down, e.g. cable unplugged
           Product: Networking
           Version: 2.5
    Kernel Version: 3.4.24 and 3.11.0
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
              Tree: Mainline
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: IPV4
          Assignee: shemminger@...ux-foundation.org
          Reporter: pelle.johnsen@...il.com
        Regression: No

When the network interface is taken down (in this case eth0 plugging out cable)
an established socket goes to zero window probing state (netstat -o shows
unkn-4). This state ignores TCP_USER_TIMEOUT (and any keep-alive timeouts) and
result is that socket takes ~12 min. to timeout instead of what is specified
with TCP_USER_TIMEOUT.

There seems to be 2 'issues':

1. Why does socket go to zero window probing in this case?

2. Why does zero window probing not respect TCP_USER_TIMEOUT?

Expected behavior:

TCP_USER_TIMEOUT can be used to limit how long it takes a socket to timeout.
