Re: [PATCH] vsock: bugfix port residue in server

thanks for the patch, the change LGTM, but I have the following

Please avoid "bugfix" in the subject, "fix" should be enough:

Anyway, I suggest to change the subject in
"vsock: avoid to close connected socket after the timeout"

What to you mean with "User" here?

notify the server when the port is released, causing the server port remain

Can we remove this blank line?

when client's vsock_connect timeout,it should check sk state is

The remote peer can't trust the other peer, indeed it will receive an
error after sending the first message and it will remove the connection,

ESTABLISHED or not. if sk state is ESTABLISHED, it means the connection
is established, the client should not set the sk state to CLOSE

Note: I encountered this issue on kernel-4.18, which can be fixed by
this patch. Then I checked the latest code in the community
and found similar issue.

In order to backport it to the stable kernels, we should add a Fixes tag:
