tcp: reduce POLLOUT events caused by TCP_NOTSENT_LOWAT
TCP_NOTSENT_LOWAT socket option or sysctl was added in linux-3.12 as a step to enable bigger tcp sndbuf limits. It works reasonably well, but the following happens : Once the limit is reached, TCP stack generates an [E]POLLOUT event for every incoming ACK packet. This causes a high number of context switches. This patch implements the strategy David Miller added in sock_def_write_space() : - If TCP socket has a notsent_lowat constraint of X bytes, allow sendmsg() to fill up to X bytes, but send [E]POLLOUT only if number of notsent bytes is below X/2 This considerably reduces TCP_NOTSENT_LOWAT overhead, while allowing to keep the pipe full.
