SubjectRe: REGRESSION f54b311142a92ea2e42598e347b84e1655caf8e3 tcp auto corking slows down iSCSI file system creation by factor of 70 [WAS: 4 TB VMFS creation takes 15 minutes vs 26 seconds]
Hello Eric,

> Here is the combined patch, could you test it?

the patch did not apply, so I edited by hand. Here is the resulting
patch:

It fixes my case but if you look at the round trip time it is not even
close what it used to be. So while this fixes my problem I'm still for
disabling it by default.
