Ack, I didn't think you were. Just explored the consequences.

No, we don't have a use case for selecting a connected UDP socket.

I left it as a possiblity because __udp[46]_lib_lookup, where BPF
sk_lookup is invoked from, can return one.

Perhaps the user would like to connect the selected receiving socket
(for instance to itself) to ensure its not used for TX?

I've pulled this scenario out of the hat. Happy to limit bpf_sk_assign
to select only unconnected UDP sockets, if returning a connected one
doesn't make sense.

I've reworded the helper doc in v2 to say:

        Description
                ...

                Only TCP listeners and UDP sockets, that is sockets
                which have *SOCK_RCU_FREE* flag set, can be selected.

                ...
        Return
                ...

                **-ESOCKTNOSUPPORT** if socket does not use RCU freeing.
