    Flow Label support for IPv6 sockets
    Hello everyone, I'm currently implementing a traffic generator software which could send IPv6 traffic by employing regular stream/dgram sockets. I'm also interested in assigning a specific flow label value for a stream but I have not been able to find any documentation about how to actually do it. Is it really so that the sin6_flowinfo member is currently unsupported even in latest kernel versions and the flow label can not be manually assigned if regular sockets are used? Of course, if I would use raw sockets I could bypass this problem but they can't be used with TCP. Cheers -J
