> according their state.  Before the sync was performed only if the
> connection is in ESTABLISHED state which always made the connections to
> timeout in the hard coded 3 minutes. However the Andy Gospodarek's patch
> ([IPVS]: use proper timeout instead of fixed value) effectively did nothing

> status changes to FIN_WAIT (2min timeout) and CLOSE (10sec timeout).
> However if the backup misses CLOSE hopefully it did not miss FIN_WAIT.
> Otherwise we will just have to wait for the ESTABLISHED state timeout. As
> it is without this patch.  This way the number of the hanging connections
> on the backup is kept to minimum. And very few of them will be left to
> timeout with a long timeout.
> This is important if we want to make use of the fix for the real server
> overcommit on master/backup fail-over.
