Other than a couple trivial conflicts in ChangeLog and configure.ac, it 
merges fine with 2.0.2.

Note that the standard Berkeley Sockets API doesn't support getting the
dest address on received UDP packets or setting the source address on
outgoing UDP packets, functionality which is necessary for UDP multihoming
to work correctly, so this patch currently uses some nonportable
Linux-only syscalls.

It's a high priority for 2.1.
