AFAIK IPPROTO_TCP and SOCK_RAW should pass a copy of all tcp packets
received to any proccess with an open socket of this kind. I _know_ this
works fine under SOCK_RAW IPPROTO_ICMP, but it isnt under IPPROTO_TCP. Now
forgive my ignorance.. but do I need a socketoption I simply kind find in
the man pages to have a RAW socket of IPPROTO_TCP get a copy of all tcp
packets received by the kernel? or does FreeBSD _not_ do this with
IPPROTO_TCP raw sockets?

(forgive the caps there.. but im a technical kinda guy)
