Subject: [PATCH RFC 0/2] tcp: allow to repair a tcp connections in closing states
Date: Thursday 10th April 2014 20:25:37 UTC (over 2 years ago)
Currently connections only in the TCP_ESTABLISHED state can be dumped and restored. This series allows to restore connections in the FIN_WAIT_1, FIN_WAIT_2, LAST_ACK, CLOSE_WAIT, CLOSING or TIME_WAIT states. v2: We decide to not use control message for repairing fin packets in queues. Because it looks quite tricky. Alexey suggested to restore each state separately and in this case setsockopt looks more logical.
