Subject: [PATCH net] net/smc: sync err code when tcp connection was refused

From: liuyacan <>

In the current implementation, when TCP initiates a connection
to an unavailable [ip,port], ECONNREFUSED will be stored in the
TCP socket, but SMC will not. However, some apps (like curl) use
getsockopt(,,SO_ERROR,,) to get the error information, which makes
them miss the error message and behave strangely.
