Well, right, marking a socket via setsockopt SO_BINDTODEVICE
does not work - I get -EPERM. Maybe works only from user land
since the ifname gets copied in from there.

What I tested as working is nailing the scope of wildcard
listen via:
s->sk->sk_bound_dev_if = netdev->ifindex;

Without doing it, wildcard listen would end up covering all
interfaces, even if siw is not attached to some. Also, if siw is
attached to more than one interface, only the first bind call
works of course (for wildcard, the rdma_cm calls me for all
interfaces siw is attached to). So without binding to a
device it is not working.

I am not sure what is the right way of limiting the scope
of a socket to one interface in kernel mode. Is above line
the way to go, or do I miss an interface to do such things?
Anybody could help?

Thanks very much!
Bernard.
