I have no idea why you keep using sysctl_tcp_fastopen in your patches.

It seems you only want your application to
read /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_fastopen ?

And you don't have CONFIG_PROC_FS maybe, and you add a workaround ?

As already mentioned, even if sysctl_tcp_fastopen is set to one, it does
not mean this socket is fastopen enabled.

setsockopt()/getsockopt() for a given key should be symmetrical.

ie :

getsockopt(fd, SOL_TCP, TCP_FASTOPEN, &val, &len);
setsockopt(fd, SOL_TCP, TCP_FASTOPEN, &val, sizeof(val));

should be a no operation. Its obviously not the case with your proposal.

Please address Neal concerns, and add in the changelog what is this
option supposed to do _exactly_.

hint : max_qlen and sysctl_tcp_fastopen do not have the same units,
its like comparing apples and oranges.

Thanks
