Subject: [PATCH 010 of 14] knfsd: SUNRPC: add a "generic" function to see if the peer uses a secure port


From: Chuck Lever <chuck.lever@...cle.com>
The only reason svcsock.c looks at a sockaddr's port is to check whether
the remote peer is connecting from a privileged port.  Refactor this check
to hide processing that is specific to address format.
