There are significant subtleties involved in using SO_LINGER with tcp.
I do not know whether applying it here would be good or bad in the tcp
case, much less the sctp case.  I assume that the default tcp/sctp
behavior exists for some good reasons, and I'd like any change to be
reviewed by experts in the area.

Also, your example (sysrq) is not a compelling reason to make a change.
We do not want to risk harming any common situations for the sake of
this uncommon and avoidable one.
