    rxrpc: Fix life check · 7150ceaa
    David Howells authored
    The life-checking function, which is used by kAFS to make sure that a call
    is still live in the event of a pending signal, only samples the received
    packet serial number counter; it doesn't actually provoke a change in the
    counter, rather relying on the server to happen to give us a packet in the
    time window.
    
    Fix this by adding a function to force a ping to be transmitted.
    
    kAFS then keeps track of whether there's been a stall, and if so, uses the
    new function to ping the server, resetting the timeout to allow the reply
    to come back.
    
    If there's a stall, a ping and the call is *still* stalled in the same
    place after another period, then the call will be aborted.
    
    Fixes: bc5e3a54 ("rxrpc: Use MSG_WAITALL to tell sendmsg() to temporarily ignore signals")
    Fixes: f4d15fb6 ("rxrpc: Provide functions for allowing cleaner handling of signals")
