Subject[PATCH] tcp: keepalive fixes
From: Enke Chen <enchen@paloaltonetworks.com>

In this patch two issues with TCP keepalives are fixed:

1) TCP keepalive does not timeout when there are data waiting to be
delivered and then the connection got broken. The TCP keepalive
timeout is not evaluated in that condition.

The fix is to remove the code that prevents TCP keepalive from
being evaluated for timeout.

2) With the fix for #1, TCP keepalive can erroneously timeout after
the 0-window probe kicks in. The 0-window probe counter is wrongly
applied to TCP keepalives.

The fix is to use the elapsed time instead of the 0-window probe
counter in evaluating TCP keepalive timeout.
