Subject[PATCH] net: packet: option to only pass skb protocol
When sending packets with a packet socket it is often necessary to set
protocol in msg_name: otherwise the protocol field in the skb will not
be set correctly. However, currently doing this also requires
supplying the interface index.

The following patch makes it possible to avoid supplying the interface
index by interpreting index 0 as "use device this socket is bound to".
