SubjectRe: [PATCH] af_unix: fix EPOLLET regression for stream sockets
From: Eric Dumazet <>
Date: Sun, 29 Jan 2012 03:11:03 +0100

> Commit 0884d7aa24 (AF_UNIX: Fix poll blocking problem when reading from
> a stream socket) added a regression for epoll() in Edge Triggered mode
> Appropriate fix is to use skb_peek()/skb_unlink() instead of
> skb_dequeue(), and only call skb_unlink() when skb is fully consumed.
> This remove the need to requeue a partial skb into sk_receive_queue head
> and the extra sk->sk_data_ready() calls that added the regression.
> This is safe because once skb is given to sk_receive_queue, it is not
> modified by a writer, and readers are serialized by u->readlock mutex.
> This also reduce number of spinlock acquisition for small reads or
> MSG_PEEK users so should improve overall performance.
