New submission from jpv:

Please add support for SO_MARK in socket module.

>From man 7 socket:

SO_MARK (since Linux 2.6.25): Set the mark for each packet sent through this  socket  (similar to  the  netfilter  MARK target but socket-based).  Changing the mark can be used for mark-based routing without netfilter or for packet    filtering. Setting   this   option   requires   the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability.
