I'd like to address PR 5750 by adding a sysctl "net.listen_backlog" which
specifies the upper limit of the connection backlog of a listen() call.
The kernel default for this value would be 5, _but_ the definition of
SOMAXCONN in <sys/socket.h> would be changed to something intended to make
reasonable use of an increased value by default (say, 32). Since listen()
silently reduces a larger-than-the-limit number automatically, this would
not interfere with program operation.
