If we cap the buffers in the checkpoint image to the current system
limit (sysctl) and then set the per-socket buffer limit (after reading
them in) to the value in the checkpoint image then we get the desired
result, right?

OL> I can't predict the future, but it's been there forever...

Yeah, after I sent that I remembered that the magic 108 is in the
sockaddr_un structure which is a userspace API and therefore not
likely to change.

Yep, fair enough.

Ah, I thought you meant "was reachable on the source system and not
reachable on the target system".  I'm with you now :)
