    SubjectRe: [PATCH] Networking: send-to-self [link to non-broken patch this time]

    I don't think I'll be applying this:

    1) No tcp ipv6 bits
    2) SIOC{S,G}ACCEPTLOCALADDRS added, but no 32-bit translation
    code added to varions 64-bit/32-bit biarch port ioctl handling.
    Also, no code added to the ioctl dispatch in the networking
    so that devices could actually receive these requests.
    3) Finally, it's just too damn ugly. If you have to ifdef it then
    it really doesn't belong in the tree. Maybe if the device number
    comparison logic changes existed via macros in tcp.h and thus
    removing all the CONFIG_NET_SENDTOSELF ifdefs from tcp*.c code
    it might be more palatable.
    4) I haven't reviewed the ramifications of the route lookup changes,
    that is Alexey's territory.

    Sorry, these changes are pretty ugly right now.
