Subject: [PATCH net] tcp: disable TFO blackhole logic by default
Date: Wed, 21 Jul 2021 10:27:38 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210721172738.1895009-1-weiwan@google.com> (raw)

Multiple complaints have been raised from the TFO users on the internet
stating that the TFO blackhole logic is too aggressive and gets falsely
triggered too often.
(e.g. https://blog.apnic.net/2021/07/05/tcp-fast-open-not-so-fast/)
Considering that most middleboxes no longer drop TFO packets, we decide
to disable the blackhole logic by setting
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_fastopen_blackhole_timeout_set to 0 by default.

Fixes: cf1ef3f0719b4 ("net/tcp_fastopen: Disable active side TFO in certain scenarios")
