Hi Maxim,

Thanks for letting us know.

Our updated patch is located at http://forum.nginx.org/read.php?29,253446,253446#msg-253446 

It supposes to address all the style issues and fixes the restart and binary upgrade issues. This is just a FYI in case you are not aware of.

Apart from style/coding issues, I disagree with the whole approach.

As far as I understand the patch idea, it tries to introduce multiple listening sockets to avoid in-kernel lock contention.  
This is something that can be done completely in kernel though, and I see no reason to introduce any changes to nginx here.  

The approach previously discussed with Sepherosa Ziehau looks much more interesting.
