Subject: [PATCH net-next 00/11] tcp: remove code from tcp_create_openreq_child()

tcp_create_openreq_child() is essentially cloning a listener, then
must initialize some fields that can not be inherited.

Listeners are either fresh sockets, or sockets that came through
tcp_disconnect() after a session that dirtied many fields.

By moving code to tcp_disconnect(), we can shorten time taken
to create a clone, since tcp_disconnect() operation is very

Eric Dumazet (11):
  tcp: do not set snd_ssthresh in tcp_create_openreq_child()
  tcp: move icsk_rto init to tcp_disconnect()
  tcp: do not clear packets_out in tcp_create_openreq_child()
  tcp: do not clear srtt_us in tcp_create_openreq_child
  tcp: move mdev_us init to tcp_disconnect()
  tcp: move snd_cwnd & snd_cwnd_cnt init to tcp_disconnect()
  tcp: do not clear urg_data in tcp_create_openreq_child
  tcp: move retrans_out,sacked_out,tlp_high_seq,last_oow_ack_time init
    to tcp_disconnect()
