  Fix a long-standing limitation in IPv4 multicast group membership.
  By making the imo_membership array a dynamically allocated vector,
  this minimizes disruption to existing IPv4 multicast code. This
  change breaks the ABI for the kernel module ip_mroute.ko, and may
  cause a small amount of churn for folks working on the IGMPv3 merge.
  Previously, sockets were subject to a compile-time limitation on
  the number of IPv4 group memberships, which was hard-coded to 20.
  The imo_membership relationship, however, is 1:1 with regards to
  a tuple of multicast group address and interface address. Users who
  ran routing protocols such as OSPF ran into this limitation on machines
  with a large system interface tree.
