Having resurrect my work there really are tons of int cases. Which
makes me thing that splitting out a setsockopt_int method which gets
passed value instead of a pointer, then converting all the simple cases
to that first and then doing the real shit later sounds like a promіsing
idea. Let me think a bit more about that.

And yes, a lot of the common methods have tons of cases and
sub-dispatchers and everything else you'd expect from an ioctl-like
