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.
