SubjectRe: [PATCH] tcp: disable auto corking by default
Hello Eric,

I agree that leaving it enabled helps to find bugs, however I'm not
happy with the round trip time degradation.

I agree. But if it breaks the application many people won't be happy,
for example I spend already 5 hours to track it down.

Yes, but 230 micro seconds for others. :-(

I agree.

Btw. I mixed up the pcaps for autocork on and off, so I moved the files
that they know show what they should show.

Cheers,
Thomas
