Hi guys
     i run nginx  as a proxy, it became a client when  connecting to a
upstream server.
     i want to close the connection with SO_LINGER option when i read the
full data, because linger_close send RST to upstream server and  avoid too
many time_wait state.
     does nginx support the feature? (i think this feature is different with
the existing lingering_clise directive)
