how i hate this shitty dsl driver ... adding new sockopt is nort an
option. that would involve editing the dsl driver and userland and even
looking at the code causes permanent brain damage as can be seen by the
patches and fixes ... i will find a different hack to make this only
apply when lantiq is selected.
