Accelerator daemon for apache

Lingerd is a daemon designed to properly close network connections from an HTTP server (ie Apache). This frees the server from doing the boring but time-consuming job of "lingering closes", and lets each process go on to the next connection immediately. As a result, Apache needs fewer processes to handle high loads. This saves memory, reduces kernel contention, and makes Apache more scalable.
