I do not think it is net candidate, but net-next

Yuchung might correct me, but I think TCP Fastopen standard was very
conservative about payload len in the SYN packet

So receiving an ICMP was never considered.

This is going to crash in some cases, you do not know if you own the socket.

Same issue here.
