- Gleb is suggesting to remove the compressed TCP TIMEWAIT state. The memory savings are limited, memory is not that critical anymore and it would simplify the code and allow further optimizations of the code. glebius@ will reach out to people if there are some objections. It was also discussed which information would be need to reduce the time a TCP connections stays in TIMEWAIT state. One thing he will implement is a counter how many compressed states where used at all. Discussion has been started on net@.
- Some usages of ticks in the TCP stack might result in strange behaviour. Using ticks should be avoided...
ECN implementation has been improved. The code is now contained in one file tcp_ecn.c.
D21011 will be reviewed by rrs@ and tuexen@.
iSCSI changes D32540, D34198, D34230. rscheff@ is looking for reviewers.
PR 260393 seems to happen on stable/13. The source in stable/13 right now seems to be the candidate for 13.1 unless bugs are reported.
D23230 is implementing ECN++.
- An IPv6 problem related to multicast was reported by rscheff@. It was suggested to ask bz@.
