 PATCH for Multicast bug in RAW IP sockets 2.4.0

In ipv4 a call to the setsockopt() function with the optname set to
IP_ADD_MEMBERSHIP and a raw ip socket adds the socket to the multicast
group specified by the user. As a result the tcpip stack code does the
ip_setsockopt(_,_,IP_ADD_MEMBERSHIP,_,_) calls ip_mc_join_group(sock,_)
function, which adds a multicast entry to the sock->protinfo.af_inet.mc_list
and then adds a multicast entry to the bound device (if any) with a call
to the ip_mc_inc_group() function.

When remote multicast packets that belong to the multicast group we just
joined are received, the routing code recognizes the packets as multicast
packet going to a local receiver, but the __raw_v4_lookup() function only
examines the main sock address (sock->rcv_saddr) and totally forgets that
this raw sock can a member of multiple multicast groups.

The following patch fixes the problem:
