I think the ordinary sk->sleep queue is ok. In case other waiters are
waked too they will just see the sk->shutdown & SEND_SHUT.. flag earlier,
and if the wake up is triggered by other code it is likely that new memory
is available then. Or do I miss something? :)

Of course the timer shouldn't last longer than the linger time - 2*time
of first sock_wmalloc() [as an heuristic]


P.S.: I looked over the lock_socks and didn't find anything obvious that
could explain SMP freezes.
