        pkgsrc/benchmarks/nttcp doesn't work.

        nttcp try to do setsockopt SO_LINGER with:

struct linger Ling = {
        1,              /* option on */
        1000000         /* linger time, for our control connection */

        after uipc_socket.c rev.1.131, we rejects values larger
        than USHRT_MAX.
revision 1.131
date: 2006/12/08 00:23:08;  author: christos;  state: Exp;  lines: +6 -5
- make so_linger unsigned short to double the range
- return 1 or 0 for the flag being set instead of the flag value
- check for range properly

        another report of the failure:

        (note that nttcp's error handling is somehow broken and
        can corrupt errno before reporting it.)
        run nttcp.
        while nttcp is broken and should be fixed, i guess it could be better
        for us to truncate this big value silently, given that it's likely
        intended to be "forever".
