No, I meant for linux-pass-unterminated.diff to be checked in so
that applications could always send datagrams back to the address
they got them from, even when it was 108 bytes long.  As it is
run only on Linux, testMaxPathLen does not leave space for a null
terminator because Linux just ignores it (that is what makes it
possible to bind to a 108-byte address and thus trigger the bug).
