Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next v2] net/smc: Reduce overflow of smc clcsock listen queue
Date: Thu, 6 Jan 2022 11:51:04 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20220105150612.GA75522@e02h04389.eu6sqa>

One problem for the fallback scenario is that server must actively send 
decline message to client and wait for the clc proposal message that 
client may already sent, otherwise the message of SMC handshake may be 
read by user space application, which will also lead to OOM conditions 
caused by infinite amount of dangling sockets.

In that case, we have to make restrictions on 'SMC fallback ing', which 
makes things more complicated.

Any advise will be highly appreciated.
