    Hi all
    What i am trying to do is : get data that is lying in the TCP
    send buffer.
    I need the count first and then the actual data. I dont know if this
    count is already calculatated and stored somewhere ?? For data i
    *think* , i need to traverse the sk_write_queue list for all the
    sk_buff structs and pick up if there is any data in it . Currently my
    code traveses this list twice . Once for count and once for data. want
    to optimize that.

    Thanks,
    Rohit
