	Go complain to the stupid Linux kernel developers.

	If they don't want SO_BSDCOMPAT to be used is should
	be removed from the header files.

	Portable Linux code *has* to use SO_BSDCOMPAT if it is
	present to get correct operation on Linux kernels where
	it is effective.  

	Any portable code will be protecting the usage with
