When I added TCP_KEEP* sockopts to DragonFlyBSD, I checked the unit of
TCP_KEEP* on various systems that had implemented them (FreeBSD did
not have that option at that time; not sure about NetBSD). They are
using different unit, some use half-second (e.g. OpenVMS), some use 1
second (e.g. Linux); and there is no standard specifies which unit
should be used. Another reason is that I want to keep the sockopts'
unit consistent w/ the sysctls' unit. Well, and I actually used
TCP_KEEP* sockopts in my own project at that time, which requires
higher resolution TCP_KEEP* ;)
