I believe Ingo problems come on long lived sockets (were many bytes were
exchanged between the peers), so I dont think DEFER_ACCEPT is the cullprit.

I suggest to enable CONFIG_TIMER_STATS and to check timers, because
/proc/net/tcp
can display apparently large timer values when the timer is elapsed
(jiffies > icsk->icsk_timeout)
and jiffies_to_clock_t(timer_expires - jiffies) is then overflowing
doing a multiply and a divide.
On a 64bits server running linux-2.6.24-rc2, I can see *strange* timers
values too in /proc/net/tcp, but not
stuck TCP sessions. On 64 bits, these strange values have 1AD7F

On TCP_SYN_RECV (03) sockets, timer can apparently be elapsed by many
ticks, while on TCP_ESTABLISHED (01) one, I get
jiffies_to_clock(-1) -> 1AD7F29ABCA value because the way
get_tcp4_sock() is coded (jiffies can change while running this function).
Note the 00: that means that no timer in my case.

Running again the command one second later gives completely different
results (other sockets are displayed)

Maybe on 2.6.26-rc3+ we miss some timer correctness or we expose a
latent NET bug.

void sk_reset_timer(struct sock *sk, struct timer_list* timer,
unsigned long expires)
{
if (!mod_timer(timer, expires))
sock_hold(sk);
}

Note that arming a timer also increase socket refcount and could explain
why Ingo have sockets
apparently not owned by a process but still referenced (by a timer or
many ones (I see refcnt=5) on following snapshots)

Just my initial thoughts, sorry I currently cannot spend much time to
diagnose the problem.
