Re: shutdown(2)'ing a bound UDP socket

(Please don't use paragraph-length lines.)

Neither, I think.

It is local to that particular socket.  Like an open plain file, it is
possible to have multiple descriptors referring to a single socket.

In the case at hand, SO_REUSEPORT is allowing the creation of two
distinct sockets on the same address/port, only one of which is subject
to the shutdown().

> Why are you doing this dance of multiple descriptors? What behavior are you $

Yeah, that'd be my question too.  Why not just use one socket with two
descriptors on it and just never read from one of them?
