Hi David,
Not sure if you had a chance to review this version.
Now I have a question: may I split the include/linux/socket.h change
and ask you to pre-allocate the number for AF_HYPERV to allow
backporting of Hyper-V Sockets to distro kernels, and to make sure that
applications using the socket type will work with the backport as well
as the upstream kernel?

Thanks,
