OK, it's important to mention that otherwise the
assumption would be a git tree like net or net-next.

(OK, using git and linux-stable)

$ git grep -w -n one v3.18.21 -- net/core/sysctl_net_core.c
v3.18.21:net/core/sysctl_net_core.c:26:static int one = 1;

And the responsible commit:

commit c48cf4f27d4555a455c3fef71137bd0fc44d1656
("net: sysctl_net_core: check SNDBUF and RCVBUF for min length")
