In the kernel, there are a number of timeouts for things like
retransmission, keep alive, etc.  This is all well and good
provided one thing: all of the applications can live with using
the SAME timeouts.

Given the new callout mechanism we have, has anyone looked at
making it possible to set the various TCP timeouts on a per-socket

If not, does anyone have any thoughts on problems, gotchas, etc,
about making it possible to set different timeouts per-socket ?
