Hi folks...

I've committed two new socket options to the NetBSD-current kernel.  The
relevent entries from doc/CHANGES are:

	sockets: implement SO_TIMESTAMP socket option; supply a timestamp
		as a timeval in a control mbuf on datagram reception.
		[thorpej 970110]
	netinet: implement IP_RECVIF socket option; supply a datagram's
		incoming interface as a sockaddr_dl in a control mbuf
		on datagram reception.  Move packet information socket
		option processing to a generic function so that it works
		with multicast UDP and raw IP, as well as unicast UDP.

IP_RECVIF is used by the latest multicast routing code from Xerox PARC.

Many thanks to Bill Fenner <> for the contribution!
