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

Sorry? It is used by packet sniffers.

This is a silly abuse. Sniffers do not bind to protocols, should not
do this and have no reasons to do this.


> I think the patch should be added.

That which adds all the packet sockets to ptype_all? Do you jest? :-)
