Easy enough to just remove that option for the UDP case.

I think it's a bit of a security failing of Linux to allow injection of
4 unused bytes into the kernel space from user-space for every locally
opened UDP socket.  I'm not sure how I could exploit it (perhaps coding
a jump instruction to a no-op sled somewhere nearby?),  but I'm not that
