Sorry, but I still don't like this. Anything resembling device
specific code should not be in UDP, TCP, IP, etc. Proper layering in
essential to keeping implementation of transport protocols efficient,
generic, and maintainable.

It looks like the purpose of this is to provide a means of setting an
alternate route/device specific source address. I would suggest that
you could abstract it out as such. Maybe by implementing:

IFF_ALT_SRC

netif_provides_alt_source(net, oif)

FLOWI_FLAG_ALT_SRC

The have udp_sendmsg_alt_saddr be the function called from udp_sendmsg.

Thanks,
Tom
