Plan 9's network code in src/net/tcpsockopt_plan9.go contains this questionable piece of code writing to the ctl file:

// Set keep alive period.                                                                                                                  
func setKeepAlivePeriod(fd *netFD, d time.Duration) error {
        cmd := "keepalive " + string(int64(d/time.Millisecond))
        _, e := fd.ctl.WriteAt([]byte(cmd), 0)
        return e

Is that really the Plan 9 interface? Or should be it strconv.Itoa instead?

Otherwise it's actually writing something like "keepalive Ϩ" if d is 1 * time.Second.

Yes, this code is incorrect. The period should be the milliseconds as a string.
This is described in the ip(3) manual. Thanks for noticing.
