I missed originally that you were checking whether the passed socket is
in fact a SOCK_DGRAM socket, and limiting the changes to that. That's
fine, because NBD doesn't deal with SOCK_DGRAM sockets anyway (i.e.,
passing a SOCK_DGRAM socket to the NBD device is undefined behavior). If
the behavior also changes for SOCK_STREAM sockets then that would be a
problem that would need to be reverted, but otherwise it's fine.
