    SubjectRe: [PATCH 2.6.17-rc6-mm1 ] net: RFC 3828-compliant UDP-Lite support
    Date
    Quoting Alan Cox:
    | Ar Iau, 2006-06-08 am 11:50 +0100, ysgrifennodd Gerrit Renker:
    | > + UDP-Lite introduces a new socket type, the SOCK_LDGRAM (note the L) for
    | > + lightweight, connection-less services. These are the socket options:
    |
    | This is not the intended use of the socket API when distinguishing
    | between services. The socket() call has a protocol field that is usually
    | unused and it exists precisely to disambiguate multiple protocols with
    | the same generic behaviour but different properties.
    |
    | s = socket(PF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, IPPROTO_UDPLITE);
    |
    | is probably the right way to do this, keeping 0 "default" as before
    | meaning IPPROTO_UDP
    Understood. Please, anyone, disregard or un-apply the previous UDP-Lite patch.
    A revised patch will be prepared and posted as soon as testing permits.
