Why do you need an user level TCP stack in a production system. With

the system. The only reason I can think of for having user level TCP
stack is for stack to be available all the time (if it crashes, "init"
will start it again) and upgrading stack without kernel reboot.Though
I still strongly feel all the I/O (whether network, file etc) should
be done in kernel.
Here is one project that has implemented user level TCP/IP stack for
