The BSD listen(2) syscall (on a socket) provides for the specification
of a queue of pending connection requests. So does the TLI T_LISTEN function.

What are the pros and cons of this functionality? Is it merely a matter
of the cost of copying a protocol control block versus the cost of opening
and initialising one? Or is there also a functional benefit?
