Oh! Thanks for pointing that out. Fixed.

Oh I see what you mean. They're all related to the same change. I've
changed the patch header to try to explain that too. The overall goal of
fixing up sendTo / recvFrom in Network is simpler to achieve with the
listed changes. Given those additional changes wouldn't be terribly
important if it weren't for the the implementation of datagram
communication in Network, I don't think it's a good idea to split the
patch up.
