    SubjectRe: [bug] stuck localhost TCP connections, v2.6.26-rc3+

    Me too, however with a completely different scenario; my hung connections
    are not related to distcc at all. The output from /proc/net/tcp that Ingo
    posted a few days ago are somewhat different from mine, however I believe
    this is the same problem or at least related. Just as Ingo experienced,
    netstat -p only shows PID/program as '-' for the hung connections while
    for other connections it shows the expected results.

    I have recently bought a new PC and have started the process of copying
    stuff from my old PC to the new PC. During this I have experienced this
    hang several times. I started copying by using tar on both ends over a ssh
    pipe but in order to eliminate possible ssh problems I also have tried tar
    over a ttcp connection which also fails. There is no obvious pattern of
    when this happens, I have experienced failures after transferring 1.15GB,
    51.4GB and 23.6GB.

    Here is the output from netstat -n -o filtered for port 22 and slightly
    edited. All the lines started with Proto == tcp and Recv-Q == 0.

    Send-Q Local Addr Foreign Addr State Timer
    0 old_pc:22 new_pc:52667 ESTABLISHED keepalive (3513.93/0/0)
    0 old_pc:22 new_pc:43825 ESTABLISHED keepalive (5467.38/0/0)
    2896 old_pc:22 new_pc:58601 ESTABLISHED on (21020884.65/0/0)
    4344 old_pc:22 new_pc:54105 ESTABLISHED on (21017016.33/0/0)
    2896 old_pc:22 new_pc:34149 ESTABLISHED on (20986889.24/0/0)

    The first two connections are ongoing, working, interactive ssh
    connections. The other three connections died days ago on my new PC.

    One thing that caught my eyes was these very high timer values.
    Checking the netstat source reveals that the value printed is "(double)
    time_len / HZ" and that time_len is extracted from /proc/net/tcp. While
    my CONFIG_HZ is 1000, I assume netstat has picked up HZ as 100 from
    /usr/include/asm/param.h, and then things really seems to imply that
    there is some integer overflow since 2^31 = 2147483648.

    Looking into get_tcp4_sock in net/ipv4/tcp_ipv4.c I see that timer_expires
    is initialized with icsk->icsk_timeout for the troublesome cases. But
    here my competence to trace this further stops, so I have no idea of
    how icsk->icsk_timeout gets such high values.

    My old PC is currently still running with these stalled connections
    present so let me know if there is something I should try to investigate
    further. I can post output from /proc/net/tcp and my .config if you want
    to have a look. My old PC is 32 bit/Celeron single core, kernel 2.6.24,
    while my new is 64 bit/Q9300 quad core, kernel The ethernet
    cards are the following:

    02:0d.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
    RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
    02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8056
