I was running a random grep on our source tree on COMPAT_43 and I
noticed svr4 had this #error in it, so I thought: I wonder what would
happen if I'd remove the #error. It turns out only two socket functions
used actual COMPAT_43 bits, so that's why I wrote the patch.
Thanks for pointing me to jhb. I'll contact him.
