fix tcp select() with non-zero timeout for redhat 4.5
Linux kernel versions 18.104.22.168 and earlier seems to block a TCP select() with non-zero timeout, for up to 40 msec, one or two times every second.
This problem does not occur in more recent versions of kernel: for example in 2.6.18-92.
The problem is that we have RHEL 4.5 and the new kernel doesn't fit it (according to RH).
Is there a way or a kernel suitable for RHEL 4.5 fixing that without upgrading to RHEL 5.x (RH suggestion)?
Thanks in advance
