I need to get back somewhere the port that bind gave me.
I can do it later by hand.  But that function has one parameter that
says that it update the sockaddr that gets passed, and it don't do it.

Auditing all the users of it, they don't care (basically all of them
just free the addr after returning for this function).

But if you preffer that I do this directly on the migration code, I have
no problem with that.

Ok, I will change to do this directly on the migration code.

Ah, yet another function O:-)

Ok, I will use this one.  Sorry for the disturbance.
