I am working on Unix sockets in Linux to add multicast and filtering

I received some feedback on the kernel mailing list and I am improving
my patches.

I also have some shaky patches on libdbus to use multicast Unix
sockets and socket filters. There is no D-Bus activation and a lot of
open questions but I can start a GNOME session, some basic D-Bus tests
on it and dbus-monitor.
