    This is possible indeed, but in a few minutes re-read I still understand the
    same thing as yesterday: if there's only 1 packet in the write queue pointed by
    the send_head the nonagle will remains zero and the tcp_nagle_check will get
    nonagle zero as well and it will compute the nagle default algorithm, this last
    packet will be delayed normally in function of the nagle algortith. I can
    think of a:


    and the 1 byte of payload will stay there until there will be nothing in flight
    and all previously sent data will be acknowledged from the receiver. It seems
    even more clear that we can delay the push in the wire of the last packet with
    the uncorking if the receiver window or the congestion window forbid us to xmit
    such packet immediatly in the uncork call. I admit I didn't looked at all into
    the tcp_minshall_check due lack of time (that in turn means I don't know the
    semantics of snd_sml), maybe it makes the difference but then I don't see how.
    The rest seems quite obvious, packets_out indicates that we sent packets and
    that those packets aren't acknowledged yet. I would have written a testcase to
    try in practice what happens but I'm busy, I apologise for bothering if I'm
    totally wrong. However if you have the time you would make me a favour if you
    could tell _where_ my understanding of the code is wrong and what exactly I'm
    missing. Thx!
