As Dylan said, we're currently short of viable ideas to fix this. Filtering at
the program level imho is inacceptable, and everything else would need kernel
level support. Judging from the linux-net mailing list replies, the kernel devs
don't seem to feel like helping out there.
Personally, I don't feel like creating a kernel patch and boxing it through lkml.
I'm afraid this one is a WONTFIX until someone implements a SO_BROADCAST_RECV
for us in the kernel that allows us to tell a socked bound to a specific ip
address to receive broadcasts coming in on the device that owns the IP address
our socket is bound to.
If this sounds like gibberish to you, I can't blame you. However, I am not going
to spend any more time on this bug, I have enough other things to fix. Adding
more "Please fix this." posts probably won't help.
