The main reason of calling it here is, to override stack's TCP
listen with TCP offloaded listen, and so that TOE supported
HW will get aware of the incoming TCP connection open
request, and establishes and maintains that connection.
  I agree, it should have been called by SSL layer, but, since
the socket is opened here, in my understanding SSL layer
won't be aware of this server socket ever.

One other way is open socket in SSL layer, and it will take care of
calling setsockopt internally.

             s = BIO_socket(ls[i].sockaddr->sa_family, ls[i].type,
                            0, 0);
             s = ngx_socket(ls[i].sockaddr->sa_family, ls[i].type, 0);

But this increases nginx code complexity, and that is the reason I
avoided above change.
