New issue 1942: Support for AF_xxx sockets

Armin Rigo:

PyPy's sockets don't support all the AF_xxx address families that only work (and can only be tested) when running as root, or that are more or less deprecated nowadays.  What should we do about them?  Add them as people report a need for them, as long as they are not too much of the deprecated kind?

An example where the AF_PACKET family is needed:
