[INET]: Justification for local port range robustness.
There is a justifying patch for Stephen's patches. Stephen's patches disallows using a port range of one single port and brakes the meaning of the 'remaining' variable, in some places it has different meaning. My patch gives back the sense of 'remaining' variable. It should mean how many ports are remaining and nothing else. Also my patch allows using a single port. I sure we must be able to use mentioned port range, this does not restricted by documentation and does not brake current behavior. usefull links: Patches posted by Stephen Hemminger http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=119206106218187&w=2 http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=119206109918235&w=2 Andrew Morton's comment http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=119248225007737&w=2 1.
