tcp keepalive and dports on DragonFly

DragonFly’s tcp keepalive was changed from milliseconds to seconds.  This happened in both DragonFly-current and in the 5.6 release, and it changes the networking API, which means a dports rebuild is needed… or a pkg upgrade, for which happily all packages have been rebuilt.  So, on your next update of the system, be sure to update packages too.

    It’d be really interesting if Dillon used this Netflix requirement list as a ToDo list of things to work on to possibly win Netflix over to using dragonfly

    Would be awesome if Sepherosa Ziehau got hired to Netflix and brought Dragonfly to Netflix.
