It's documented in setsockopt(2). It just also needs to be documented
I'm happy to close this ticket regardless of what is decided to do
about the documentation. The socket option appears to work (got writev
to return EPIPE), so thanks for the pointer.
libbind will be updated to use it when available.
Now to get other vendors to follow suite as it is something that has
been needed for a long time and consistancy is good.
