I don't intend to apply this patch to the distributed code.  AFAIK Sybase
provides no such control over low-level TCP/IP details.  For most people
they're a source of confusion and potential error.  

I haven't been able to look into it carefully, but it wouldn't be
difficult to expose the socket descriptor for a connection, if it's not
already possible.  The application could then call ioctl(2) itself.
