RDS applications use predominantly request-response, transacation 
based IPC, so that ingress and egress traffic are well-balanced,
and it is possible/desirable to reduce system-call overhead by
piggybacking the notifications for zerocopy completion response
with data. 

Moreover, it has been pointed out that socket functions block
if sk_err is non-zero, thus if the RDS code does not plan/need
to use sk_error_queue path for completion notification, it
is preferable to remove the sk_errror_queue related paths in

Both of these goals are implemented in this series.

Sowmini Varadhan (3):
  selftests/net: revert the zerocopy Rx path for PF_RDS
  rds: deliver zerocopy completion notification with data
  selftests/net: reap zerocopy completions passed up as ancillary data.
