SubjectRe: Bind to protocol with AF_PACKET doesn't work for outgoing packets

RTFM of the maillists, Andi.

Generally packet sockets MUST NOT tap on output packets. No differences

What the hell packet socket should do this?
Snapping on output is feature which must be regulated by a separate option.
And to be honest I see no tragedy, if this option will not exist for sockets
bound to specific protocols.
