That's not what I was suggesting. Cant the timer simply be re-extended to the
120-second interval? I.e. on an active connection, it will never fire because it's
always advancing.

As defined here, it will go off and send a keepalive every 120 seconds. The
idle_connection_timer() routine unconditionally sends it.

Firing the timer, no big deal. Sending the packets and requiring the peer to process
them too, disagree.
