Subject[PATCH 5.9 47/74] tcp: Prevent low rmem stalls with SO_RCVLOWAT.
Date
From: Arjun Roy <arjunroy@google.com>

[ Upstream commit 435ccfa894e35e3d4a1799e6ac030e48a7b69ef5 ]

With SO_RCVLOWAT, under memory pressure,
it is possible to enter a state where:

1. We have not received enough bytes to satisfy SO_RCVLOWAT.
2. We have not entered buffer pressure (see tcp_rmem_pressure()).
3. But, we do not have enough buffer space to accept more packets.

In this case, we advertise 0 rwnd (due to #3) but the application does
not drain the receive queue (no wakeup because of #1 and #2) so the
flow stalls.

Modify the heuristic for SO_RCVLOWAT so that, if we are advertising
rwnd<=rcv_mss, force a wakeup to prevent a stall.

Without this patch, setting tcp_rmem to 6143 and disabling TCP
autotune causes a stalled flow. With this patch, no stall occurs. This
is with RPC-style traffic with large messages.

Fixes: 03f45c883c6f ("tcp: avoid extra wakeups for SO_RCVLOWAT users")
