    net-timestamp: extend SCM_TIMESTAMPING ancillary data struct · f24b9be5

    Applications that request kernel tx timestamps with SO_TIMESTAMPING
    read timestamps as recvmsg() ancillary data. The response is defined
    implicitly as timespec[3].
    
    1) define struct scm_timestamping explicitly and
    
    2) add support for new tstamp types. On tx, scm_timestamping always
       accompanies a sock_extended_err. Define previously unused field
       ee_info to signal the type of ts[0]. Introduce SCM_TSTAMP_SND to
       define the existing behavior.
    
    The reception path is not modified. On rx, no struct similar to
    sock_extended_err is passed along with SCM_TIMESTAMPING.
