The user-space app is not open source, and the routing setup is
a bit tricky as well.

I'm not certain it is specific to UDP, probably it is not.

I'm using sendmmsg to transmit frames on the packet socket, so
possibly something in that path is key.

Truth is, I can debug this with printk and see what is going
on if you have no immediate ideas what is going wrong.

Thanks,
Ben
