tipc: fix successful connect() but timed out
In commit 9546a0b7ce00 ("tipc: fix wrong connect() return code"), we fixed the issue with the 'connect()' that returns zero even though the connecting has failed by waiting for the connection to be 'ESTABLISHED' really. However, the approach has one drawback in conjunction with our 'lightweight' connection setup mechanism that the following scenario can happen: (server) (client) +- accept()| | wait_for_conn() | | |connect() -------+ | |<-------[SYN]---------| > sleeping | | *CONNECTING | |--------->*ESTABLISHED | | |--------[ACK]-------->*ESTABLISHED > wakeup() send()|--------[DATA]------->|\ > wakeup() send()|--------[DATA]------->| | > wakeup() . . . . |-> recvq . . . . . | . send()|--------[DATA]------->|/ > wakeup() close()|--------[FIN]-------->*DISCONNECTING | *DISCONNECTING | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~> schedule() | wait again . . | ETIMEDOUT Upon the receipt of the server 'ACK', the client becomes 'ESTABLISHED' and the 'wait_for_conn()' process is woken up but not run. Meanwhile, the server starts to send a number of data following by a 'close()' shortly without waiting any response from the client, which then forces the client socket to be 'DISCONNECTING' immediately. When the wait process is switched to be running, it continues to wait until the timer expires because of the unexpected socket state. The client 'connect()' will finally get ‘-ETIMEDOUT’ and force to release the socket whereas there remains the messages in its receive queue. Obviously the issue would not happen if the server had some delay prior to its 'close()' (or the number of 'DATA' messages is large enough), but any kind of delay would make the connection setup/shutdown "heavy". We solve this by simply allowing the 'connect()' returns zero in this particular case. The socket is already 'DISCONNECTING', so any further write will get '-EPIPE' but the socket is still able to read the messages existing in its receive queue. Note: This solution doesn't break the previous one as it deals with a different situation that the socket state is 'DISCONNECTING' but has no error (i.e. sk->sk_err = 0).
