......@@ -72,6 +72,10 @@ this flag, a process must first signal intent by setting a socket option:
if (setsockopt(fd, SOL_SOCKET, SO_ZEROCOPY, &one, sizeof(one)))
error(1, errno, "setsockopt zerocopy");
Setting the socket option only works when the socket is in its initial
(TCP_CLOSED) state. Trying to set the option for a socket returned by accept(),
for example, will lead to an EBUSY error. In this case, the option should be set
to the listening socket and it will be inherited by the accepted sockets.
