Huh? Why this limitation?

The sockets API builds upon the raw-API,
thus the port must support both APIs!

I can't see why a specific port should
impose such a severe limitation.

One of the features of lwIP is that you
_can_ use it without a kernel and thus
without a socket layer.

Even if the driver requires a kernel,
the raw-API should work just fine as long
as the network code runs in same
