Hi Ryan,

The Unicorns could be accept()-ing connections fast enough and the
queued connections aren't noticeable[1].

Try sending SIGWINCH to the Unicorn master process and they
should be queueing up because all the workers will have stopped.
(SIGHUP to restart the workers).

You can test and walk through this yourself on IRB, too:

1. startup irb: "irb -rsocket", then inside irb:

   server = TCPServer.new '', 3000

2. Now, hit the address you started the server on in a different
   terminal with curl:

     curl -v  # curl should block here

3. Run linux-tcp-listener-stats:

    # You should see one queued, zero active

4. Back in irb, accept the connection:

   client = server.accept # should get a TCPSocket object

5. Run linux-tcp-listener-stats again:

    # You should see one active, zero queued

If you fire up more curl instances in other terminals without
running "server.accept" in IRB, you should see more queued.

Let me know how it goes for you.

[1] - On a side note, Unicorn is very aggressive about accepting
      connections, it speculatively tries to accept() after each
      application dispatch (which could've taken a long time)
      instead of running select() on the listen socket first.
