Re: [PATCH] SO_REUSEPORT support for listen sockets

Hi all,

Sorry for the top post, here is the patch in the second around:
http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/~sephe/ngx_reuseport2.diff

Addressed two problems based on feedbacks:
- Condition the code directly operates on SO_REUSEPORT
- Don't enable so_reuseport, if '-t' (i.e. ngx_test_config==1) is
specified on the command line

Best Regards,
sephe
