Hello!

> we need per socket preference.

What kind of? Some matching rules loaded to socket by user?

Anyway, rules established by a particular client should be separate,
it is just a generalization of bind()/IP{V6}_PKTINFO.

I am not sure that it is really interesting though. Just now I cannot
imagine what user can invent which is not covered by system-wide rules,
bind() and IP{V6}_PKTINFO. Well, if you think more hairy scheme is interesting,
feel free to implement this.
