------- Additional Comments From david@weekly.org  2007-02-05 17:07 -------
The Linux tcp(7) man page indicates that the parameter is NOT the number of
seconds the kernel waits but instead is the number of attempts the TCP stack
should make to complete the connection. This would indicate a value like "3" to
be much more sane than "30", which could invite abuse.

Quote below:

TCP_DEFER_ACCEPT
"Allows a listener to be awakened only when data arrives on the socket. Takes an
integer value (seconds), this can bound the maximum number of attempts TCP will
make to complete the connection. This option should not be used in code intended
to be portable."
