This isn’t correct. Not for Darwin, anyway. TCP_KEEPALIVE on Darwin corresponds to Linux TCP_KEEPIDLE, not TCP_KEEPINTVL. (I checked. I read the kernel source to make sure of this.) The easiest way to implement this is to define TCP_KEEPIDLE to TCP_KEEPALIVE if TCP_KEEPIDLE isn’t defined but TCP_KEEPALIVE is. As for the other BSD systems, I’m pretty sure they implement the Linux interface (if at all). I know FreeBSD does.

Also, Darwin only grew support for TCP_KEEPINTVL in Darwin 13 (i.e. Mac OS 10.9), so even with my suggested change, the existing #ifdef block won’t get compiled in on lower than 10.9. If you want to support 10.6 (when TCP_KEEPALIVE was introduced) through 10.8, you might consider pulling the TCP_KEEPINTVL check into its own #ifdef block, and printing a FIXME if it isn’t defined.

You know what? I already have a patch that does all these things. I think I’ll just send that. (I’ve really got to start sending more of my patches upstream…)
