parenttcp: Add MPTCP option number (diff)
tcp, ulp: Add clone operation to tcp_ulp_ops
If ULP is used on a listening socket, icsk_ulp_ops and icsk_ulp_data are copied when the listener is cloned. Sometimes the clone is immediately deleted, which will invoke the release op on the clone and likely corrupt the listening socket's icsk_ulp_data. The clone operation is invoked immediately after the clone is copied and gives the ULP type an opportunity to set up the clone socket and its icsk_ulp_data. The MPTCP ULP clone will silently fallback to plain TCP on allocation failure, so 'clone()' does not need to return an error code. v6 -> v7: - move and rename ulp clone helper to make it inline-friendly v5 -> v6: - clarified MPTCP clone usage in commit message Signed-off-by: Mat Martineau <mathew.j.martineau@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
