It's against my "religion" to back off someone else commit. First I
try to understand why and how to fix it. After the IPv6 commit, it
took me 2 days to bring the trunk back to the stage where it was
before (i.e. restore the lost functionality).

I have to ask you to remove r14549 quickly as it bring back the trunk
to the stage it was before r14544 (only random support for multiple
BTL). It's not that I don't care about IPv6, it's just that I care
more about multi TCP BTL working in the way it is supposed to work.
Moreover, I'm sure it's not the real fix you're looking for.

   Thanks,
     george.

PS: Please read the commit log for the r14544. It explain why I
changed from sockaddr_storage* to sockaddr*.
