Initial condition:
1. Blocking socket
2. Enable LWIP_SO_LINGER, set linger (l_onoff=1, l_linger=2)

1. TCP Client iperf
2. Call close function

1. Close function cannot return after two seconds.

The close->lwip_netconn_do_close_internal will "sys_arch_sem_wait".
But the PCB may enter TIME_WAIT state, the TIME_WAIT pcbs won't be process by slow_timer to trigger poll.
So the PCB will not handle "linger timer check" and "sys_sem_signal".

The task(call close function) will wait forever.

Best regards
