I have committed a regression test for this bug as:
Using this test, I am able to reproduce the return of EINVAL for a
connect() attempt on a UDP socket in jail(2), but not out of jail(2).
I'll start investigating the internal details of this bug shortly. My
initial reading is that the evaluations in the PR are correct: the connect
code appears to test for the local port being defined. However, this is a
little odd: what jail does is "pre-bind" a socket to a particular IP, and
connect() shouldn't fail because a local port has already been bound,
since bind() followed by connect() is a permitted combination. I'll
investigate more and follow up.
