To address some of the comments above:

* Yes, the patch is large. However, most of this is in the tests. Only A relatively small part is in the code that implements the required functionality. I don't care much myself about the test cases, however would have assumed these would help get it into upstream.

* raw sockets are inappropriate for using UDP TPROXY support. I don't want to bypass the kernel code and have to pass headers etc myself, I just want to get the destination address so I know where the packet was original destined for. recvmsg() is the correct solution.

* Thanks for the 2.x patch. Will try that out now.
