In TCP connection setup with have a syn, syn+ack, ack. As far as I understand, there is nothing stopping data to be sent with the first ack except the lack of an API to do so. (In socket world, the socket isn't writeable at that stage and you are still in connect() until the ack is sent).

Sun streams was supposed to solve this, but didn't gain traction outside solaris space. Is there anything that allows you to do this on Linux? Why don't clients do this to if so.
