I think there is no hurry.

We should let auto corking on during 3.14 development cycle so that we
can fix the bugs, and thing of some optimizations.

auto cork gives a strong incentive to applications to use
TCP_CORK/MSG_MORE to avoid overhead of sending multiple small segments.

In the normal case, the extra delay is something like 10 us, so if an
application is really hit by this delay, its a strong sign it could be
improved, especially if auto corking is off.

Lets wait the end of 3.14 dev cycle before considering this patch.

Don't shoot the messenger :)

Thanks !
