SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/3] network: tcp_connect should return certain errors up the stack
From: Eric Paris <>
Date: Tue, 16 Nov 2010 16:52:49 -0500

> The current tcp_connect code completely ignores errors from sending an skb.
> This makes sense in many situations (like -ENOBUFFS) but I want to be able to
> immediately fail connections if they are denied by the SELinux netfilter hook.
> Netfilter does not normally return ECONNREFUSED when it drops a packet so we
> respect that error code as a final and fatal error that can not be recovered.
