The attached patch adds a new sysctl:


It allows the system administrator to override the socket accept queue length.  This is useful in cases where applications call listen(2) with too low of a socket queue length for a busy deployment, yet there is no application tunable for it.

I look forward to any comments on the patch, we are using it in production on a large cluster already.
