Oh, I had another understanding of SO_SNDLOWAT in my head: The minimum amount
of free write space in the socket buffer so that select/poll reports POLLOUT.

In my previous mail I was specifically referring to the optimization in
sk_stream_write_space() and not to the whole TCP_NOTSEND_LOWAT knob.

Thanks,
