Hi,

Please cc the Linux network development mailing list at
netdev@...r.kernel.org (cc-ed) for Linux networking patches like this.

I don't think this is the implementation we'd want for a getsockopt()
for TCP_FASTOPEN. I imagine that since the setsockopt(TCP_FASTOPEN)
enables Fast Open on a listening socket with a given backlog, if we
add a corresponding getsockopt() then it should return that Fast Open
backlog if Fast Open is enabled on the listening socket, or 0
otherwise. That is, basically it would be querying whether
fastopen_init_queue() has been run and returning fastopenq->max_qlen
if so. That way setsockopt(TCP_FASTOPEN, getsockopt(TCP_FASTOPEN))
will be a NOP in most cases, as one would expect.
