    sys/netinet          in.c in.h 
  Take a first cut at cleaning up ifnet removal and multicast socket
  panics, which occur when stale ifnet pointers are left in struct
  moptions hung off of inpcbs:
  - Add in_ifdetach(), which matches in6_ifdetach(), and allows the
    protocol to perform early tear-down on the interface early in
  - Annotate that if_detach() needs careful consideration.
  - Remove calls to in_pcbpurgeif0() in the handling of SIOCDIFADDR --
    this is not the place to detect interface removal!  This also
    removes what is basically a nasty (and now unnecessary) hack.
  - Invoke in_pcbpurgeif0() from in_ifdetach(), in both raw and UDP
    IPv4 sockets.
  It is now possible to run the msocket_ifnet_remove regression test
  using HEAD without panicking.
