Merge branch 'tcp_fastopen_server'
Jerry Chu says: ==================== This patch series provides the server (passive open) side code for TCP Fast Open. Together with the earlier client side patches it completes the TCP Fast Open implementation. The server side Fast Open code accepts data carried in the SYN packet with a valid Fast Open cookie, and passes it to the application right away, allowing application to send back response data, all before TCP's 3-way handshake finishes. A simple cookie scheme together with capping the number of outstanding TFO requests (still in TCP_SYN_RECV state) to a limit per listener forms the main line of defense against spoofed SYN attacks. For more details about TCP Fast Open see our IETF internet draft at http://www.ietf.org/id/draft-ietf-tcpm-fastopen-01.txt and a research paper at http://conferences.sigcomm.org/co-next/2011/papers/1569470463.pdf A prototype implementation was first developed by Sivasankar Radhakrishnan (firstname.lastname@example.org). A patch based on an older version of Linux kernel has been undergoing internal tests at Google for the past few months.
